Afternoon activities
 
With exception of the first two days devoted to a pre-school, the other afternoons will be partly devoted to activities of the students with tutors.
  1. AA1-Calculation of  antineutrino rate from the reactors : the students will be divided in groups of 5 followed by a tutor for each of them.- Tutors: M. Baldoncini (Ferrara Univ.), L. Ludhova (RWTH Aachen Univ.and FZ Jülich  IKP-2), F. Mantovani (Ferrara Univ.), B.Ricci (Ferrara Univ.), S. Zavatarelli (Genova Univ.).
  2. AA2-Geological survey of local area – field trip. This activity will be organized by: I. Callegari (Ferrara Univ.), F. Mantovani (Ferrara Univ.), V. Strati (Ferrara Univ.).
  3. AA3-Calculating the Earth heath and the neutrino luminosity. The students will be all together in a lecture room. B.McDonough (Maryland Univ.).
  4. AA4-Extraction of the geoneutrino flux from the experimental event distributions. The students will be divided in groups of 5 followed by a tutor for each of them . M. Agostini (GSSI), S. Davini (GSSI), L. Ludhova (RWTH Aachen Univ.and FZ Jülich  IKP-2), S. Marcocci (GSSI), N. Rossi (LNGS).
  5. AA5-Evaluation of the Earth’s K-Th-U and He-Ne-Ar budgets. For students all together . O. Sramek (Charles Univ.- Prague).
  6. AA6-Visit to the Gran Sasso underground Laboratory.
