Description

Last summer, the first three stations of the Radio Neutrino Observatory Greenland (RNO-G) were successfully deployed in the Greenland Ice Sheet near Summit Station. With an eye towards ultra-high energy (>10 PeV) cosmic neutrinos, the radio detection techniques employed by RNO-G can explore the neutrino flux and energy spectrum beyond the limit of traditional optical methods. These three fully autonomous and operational stations, consisting each of 24 specialized antennas lowered to depths of up to 100 meters into the ice, are the first of an array of 35 to be constructed in the coming years. Lessons learned during the first deployment along with data taken during the 2021 season have been extraordinarily valuable, teaching us much about the drilling and installation procedure, ice properties, and hardware calibration. Furthermore, we have been able to successfully identify anthropogenic noise elements in the local environment and have first confirmation of how the detectors behave in the real world vs simulations. We will present first results on calibration, data reduction, and advances in reconstruction techniques.
