Abstract :
NESTOR is a deep-sea neutrino telescope that is under construction in the Ionian Sea off the coast of Greece at a depth of about 4000 m. This paper briefly reviews the detector structure and deployment techniques before describing in detail the calibration and engineering run of a test detector carried out in 2003. The detector was operated for more than 1 month and data was continuously transmitted to shore via an electro-optical cable laid on the sea floor. The performance of the detector is discussed and analysis of the data obtained shows that the measured cosmic ray muon flux is in good agreement with previous measurements and with phenomenological cosmic ray models.
