Welcome to the Underground Nuclear Astrophysics Group!

The Underground-NAG is a working group coordinated by JINA ( Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics ). This group will study the potential for making important measurements for nuclear astrophysics "located in the Deep Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory" that require a small particle accelerator and very low backgrounds. The measurements made will be applied to the understanding of nuclear reactions and other processes in stars.
