XXth International Conference on Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics
Search for UHE Neutrinos with AMANDA
A Method to search for UHE neutrino events above 10^16 eV with AMANDA
is described. As the earth is nearly opaque for neutrinos above 10^16
eV and the overburden above the AMANDA detector is limited the UHE
neutrino induced muons are concentrated at the horizon. Extracting
signal events in the upper hemisphere requires the rejection of the
large flux of downward going atmospheric muons. A preliminary upper
limit (not including systematics) for an E^-2 neutrino flux (10^15 eV
< E_nu < 10^20 eV) of the order of 1.5x10^-6 E^-2 cm^-2 s^-1 sr^-1
GeV^-1 is set.
