[NU136] High Energy Neutrino expectations from the Central Molecular Zone


  • Antonio MARINELLI

Primary authors



In this work we present a detailed study of the high-energy neutrino flux expectation from the Central Molecular Zone (CMZ) considering different possible hadronic contributions. The TeV gamma-ray observations from the dense molecular clouds and supernovae remnants (SNRs) contained in this region, suggest a careful modeling of this guaranteed neutrino factory. We consider a recently introduced cosmic-ray transport model motivated by the Fermi-LAT diffuse gamma-ray data, and compute the expected neutrino emission from several relevant molecular clouds near the Galactic Center (namely, Sagittarius A, B, C). We also obtain the possible neutrino flux from SNRs located in the CMZ with different emission hypotheses based on the Fermi-LAT and H.E.S.S. measurements. We eventually compare our predictions with the capabilities of the Global Neutrino Network.
