A multi-km3 sized Neutrino Telescope

KM3NeT, a future European deep-sea research infrastructure, will host a neutrino telescope with a volume of several cubic kilometres at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea that will open a new window on the Universe.

The deep seas of the Mediterranean offer not only excellent opportunities for building a neutrino telescope, but they are of course also of large interest for other scientists. E.g. with an array of very sensitive temperature sensors connected at the KM3NeT sites, oceanographic physicists can measure the internal wave-induced turbulence of the water in the deep sea which is so important for life at these depths.
