Abstract: The muon intensity attenuation method to detect heterogeneities in largematter volumes is analyzed. Approximate analytical expressions to estimate thecollection time and the signal to noise ratio, are proposed and validated byMonte Carlo simulations. Important parameters, including point spread functionand coordinate reconstruction uncertainty are also estimated using Monte Carlosimulations.
