Description

NOvA is a long-baseline (810 km) neutrino oscillation experiment utilizing the recently upgraded NuMI beam at Fermilab and a highly segmented 14 kton liquid scintillator far detector 14 mrad off beam axis at Ash River, MN. NOvA will provide high precision measurements of ${\Delta}M^2_{23}$, ${\theta}_{13}$, and ${\theta}_{23}$; help constrain ${\delta}_{CP}$; and potentially determine the mass hierarchy and the octant through both disappearance and appearance channels. The current status of the disappearance analysis will be presented, focused on measuring ${\Delta}M^2_{23}$ and ${\theta}_{23}$ with NOvA's first data.
