Abstract
Massive Observatory for Neutrino Oscillation or Limits on Their existence ( MONOLITH) is the project of an experiment to study atmospheric neutrino osc illations with a massive magnetized iron detector. A 8 t prototype equipped with about 20 m(2) of Glass RPGs has been realized and tested at LNCS with cosmic-ray muons. The capability to determine the muon direction, by means of the time-of-flight technique, is discussed. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B .V. All rights reserved.
