Canfranc Underground Laboratory

Description The Laboratorio Subterráneo de Canfranc (LSC) is a facility for Underground Science. It is conceived as a Consortium of the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, the Aragon Regional Government and the University of Zaragoza. Located under the Pyrenees mountain El Tobazo, the over burden at the site provides 850 maximum meters shielding from cosmic rays and offers a low background environment for the next generation of experiments exploring the frontiers of particle and astroparticle physics. Other sciences can also profit from the unique underground location, such as geodynamics, environmental sciences, biology, etc. This RI is an ICTS (Unique Scientific and Technological Infrastructure), included in the Spanish National Roadmap for RIs.
