    We have conducted a search for extended energy deposition trails left by ultra-relativistic magnetic monopoles interacting in Antarctic ice. The non-observation of any satisfactory candidates in the 31 days of accumulated ANITA-II flight data results in an upper limit on the diffuse flux of relativistic monopoles. We obtain a 90% C.L. limit of order...

    The Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) completed its second long-duration balloon flight in January 2009, with 31 days aloft (28.5 live days) over Antarctica. ANITA searches for impulsive coherent radio Cherenkov emission from 200 to 1200 MHz, arising from the Askaryan charge excess in ultra-high energy neutrino-induced cascades within Antarctic ice. This flight included...

    ANITA-II Antarctic Travel Log

    by  • November 3, 2008 • Travel Log

    November 3-25, 2008 The initial ANITA team arrived the first week of November, and the gondola build was in full swing led by Dana Braun, Brian Hill and Christian Miki by the 2nd week. The major structure of the gondola was all put together by Nov. 12 or so, but lots of details kept...
