Radio detection of neutrinos opens the possibility of measuring neutrinos with an energy above $10^{16}$ eV. The Radio Neutrino Observatory Greenland (RNO-G) is designed to measure the astrophysical neutrino flux at energies higher than IceCube and will enable investigations of fundamental physics at energies that are not attainable by particle accelerators. It uses an array of radio sensors and utilises the Askaryan effect in neutrino-induced cascades in ice.
Investigating the propagation of radio waves in ice is essential to properly evaluate data from radio neutrino observatories such as RNO-G. This includes understanding classically “forbidden” wave propagation, which can be empirically explained via computer simulations.
In this contribution, I will present RNO-G and its prospects, with a particular focus on the dedicated simulations of signal propagation.
