Abstract

We present a 1353 days measurement of the geo-neutrino flux in Borexino: the signal was found to be 14.3 ± 4.4 events. This result translates into Sgeo = (38.8 ± 12.0) TNU when a Th/U fixed chondritic mass ratio of 3.9 is assumed. Furthermore Borexino data are compatible with a mantle geo-neutrino signal of (15.4 ± 12.3) TNU.
