Description

Following the Milagro detection of multi-TeV gamma-rays from both the Cygnus and central Galactic regions, we investigate the consequences of a hadronic origin for this large scale diffuse emission. We demonstrate that such observations are highly relevant to the predictions of detectable fluxes by upcoming km3 neutrino-detectors. The possibility for a verification of a hadronic origin model through upcoming TeV and multi-TeV gamma-ray detectors are discussed.
