Figure 4.5: The percentage variation in detector response over the cosmic muons data
taking time period. The top plot is for the Near Detector, while the bottom is for the Far
Detector. The Near Detector became operational nearly two years after the Far Detector.
The two periods without data taking at the Near Detector correspond to the beam and
detector shutdown. The Far Detector remains operational during shut down periods mainly
to collect atmospheric neutrino data. The change in detector response at the Far Detector
in March 2006 corresponds to the photomultiplier tuning.
