Abstract

Radioactive decays inside the Earth produce antineutrinos that may be detectable at the surface. Their flux and spectrum contain important geophysical information. New detectors need to be developed, discriminating between sources of antineutrinos, including the cosmic-background. The latter can be related to the frequency of supernovas.
