, ,
Institute for Nuclear Research, Russian Academy of Sciences, prosp. 60-letiya Oktyabrya 7a, Moscow, 117312, Russian Federation

This review discusses the current status of and prospects for large-scale Cherenkov detectors that operate in deep-underwater- and under-ice environments (Lake Baikal, Mediterranean sea, Antarctica) and which have, in the last decades, become the primary tool for measuring high energy neutrino fluxes.
110th anniversary of the birth of P.A. Cherenkov (Scientific session of the Physical Sciences Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences, 17 December 2014)
