ANTARES & KM3NeT - Deep Sea Cabled Networks for Interdisciplinary Activities

Jürgen Brunner (CPPM Marseille)
Seminar room 3, 15:00

The talk will introduce the Mediterranean neutrino telescopes ANTARES and KM3Net. While their physics motivations and results are well known, focus will be given on their complementary science programs, which profit from the existence of a cabled network in the deep sea and therefore a real-time access to a variety of data, very different from Cherenkov photon signals. Data on bioluminescence, bioacoustics, seismic activities and sea currents have been harvested for many years during ANTARES operation.
These activities together with the obtained results will be presented and a forecast to interdisciplinary activities in KM3NeT will be given.
