2010 is the fourth international conference dedicated to geo-neutrinos,
geo-reactor neutrinos, methods of detection and detector developments.
In 2005 KamLAND experiment claimed the first detection of
geo-neutrinos: this was hailed with enthusiasm by physicists
and geologists. In 2010 two extraordinary results were published
by Borexino and KamLAND: the combination of data from multiple
sites became available.
are antineutrinos from natural radioactivity inside the Earth
and they are a new probe of Earth’s interior. This new field
of science bridges neutrino physics and geology, as recently
emphasised by numerous papers written by both scientific communities.
The Gran Sasso
Underground Laboratories host Borexino, one of the most important
experiments for detecting the geo-neutrinos. In this extraordinary
location the conference will bring from around the world leaders
in neutrino detection together with experts in geology to
share the latest information and to map the path towards future
