We predict geoneutrino fluxes in a reference model based on a detailed description of Earth’s crust and mantle and using the best available information on the abundances of uranium, thorium, and potassium inside Earth’s layers. We estimate the uncertainties of fluxes corresponding to the uncertainties of the element abundances. In addition to distance integrated fluxes, we also provide the differential fluxes as a function of distance from several sites of experimental interest. Event yields at several locations are estimated and their dependence on the neutrino oscillation parameters is discussed.

Abstract

We predict geoneutrino fluxes in a reference model based on a detailed description of Earth’s crust and mantle and using the best available information on the abundances of uranium, thorium, and potassium inside Earth’s layers. We estimate the uncertainties of fluxes corresponding to the uncertainties of the element abundances. In addition to distance integrated fluxes, we also provide the differential fluxes as a function of distance from several sites of experimental interest. Event yields at several locations are estimated and their dependence on the neutrino oscillation parameters is discussed.
