Super-Kamiokande (SK) is a large water Cherenkov neutrino detector located in Kamioka mine in Gifu, Japan. Constructed in 1991 with the intention of studying proton decay, atmospheric and solar neutrinos and astronomical events like supernovae, SK is operated by a collaboration of some 40 institutions of which Warwick is one.
