Abstract Measurements on cosmic-ray intensities deep underground up to depths of 8,400 m w.e. are presented. On the basis of these observations it is suggested that, for invest gations on naturally occurring neutrinos, there are great advantages to be gained by performing the experiments at considerable depths-- around 9,000 ft---below the earth's surface, essentially because of the very low background tha is encountered at such depths. Some features relevant to neutrino physics that emerge from the measurements already made and the design of future experiments to detect cosmic ray produced and extra terrestrial neutrinos are discussed.
