Hi all,

I've posted a new note, "Effects of a Vertical Shaft to Muon Background",
by Alfred Tang, currently at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, to the
Braidwood site. The note details his modified Gaisser parameterization
for surface muons, a different approach than the fit to data used by
Martina and Jim's study. His more detailed MAND-sim talk on this work is
also available at:

His note also gives very interesting results from a study of the effect of
a vertical shaft near the detector on the underground muon flux. Thanks
again to Alfred for graciously sending such a nice writeup. If you have
any questions on the note, please include him on the email.
