Abstract: We determine the sensitivity of the KamLAND and Borexino experiments to the neutrino regeneration effect in the Earth as a function of ∆m 2 and θ, using realistic numbers for the signal and background rates. We compare the results obtained with the χ 2 method with those obtained from the conventional day-night asymmetry analysis. We also investigate how well one should be able to measure the neutrino oscillation parameters if a large day-night asymmetry is observed, taking the LOW solution as an example. We pr… Show more

“…In absence of oscillations, Borexino (KamLAND) is expected to have a signal rate of 59 (280) events/day for the central value of the Beryllium, CNO, pep fluxes predicted by [31] and a background rate of 19 (130) events/day, known with δb = 10% (50% 5 ) error. Even if the background were more uncertain, the seasonal variation of the solar neutrino flux (due to the excentricity of the earth orbit) would allow a measurement of the signal rate with an interesting accuracy [8,30]. We concentrate on Borexino and consider only the signal due to the Beryllium line (46 events/day), after three years of running.…”

“…We perform our analysis along the lines of [30], but paying more attention to the determination of the oscillation parameters, rather than to the discovery of oscillation signals. We divide the simulated data into N bins = 8 + 1 zenith bins (8 night zenith bins equally spaced in cos θ zenith , plus one day bin) and define…”
