Recent tension between two cutting edge neutrino oscillation experiments has sparked the idea of environmentally-induced decoherence. This effect alters the oscillation probability, depending on how far the neutrino travels. This search is focused on probing decoherence using the IceCube neutrino observatory, by measuring theta23 for neutrinos which have travelled different distances through the earth before reaching the detector.
