Description

The DeepCore extension of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory has established the feasibility of measuring neutrino oscillation parameters using atmospheric neutrinos at energies of roughly 10-60 GeV traveling through the Earth on a range of baselines. The proposed PINGU upgrade of IceCube would reduce the energy threshold to a few GeV, both improving the precision of these measurements and permitting determination of the ordering of the neutrino mass eigenstates through observation of matter effects. Prospects for these observations with PINGU will be discussed.
