Merged the following:

The NuMI Off-Axis νe Appearance (NOνA) experiment utilizes the neutrino beam produced at Fermilab, Neutrinos at the Main Injector (NuMI). The experiment consists of two detectors; the Near and Far Detectors are 810 km apart. The Near Detector, located at Fermilab, determines the initial state of the neutrino beam. In this poster, a muon neutrino selection and energy estimation are presented. Data and simulation comparisons for the Near Detector are shown.

The NuMI Off-axis electron neutrino Appearance (NOvA) can detect muon neutrinos and measure their disappearance via oscillation between the Near and Far Detectors. We will detail the latest selection methods, expected selection efficiencies, expected sample purities, and energy estimation methods for muon neutrino detection at both detectors. We will also verify all of these factors via comparison with data from the Near Detector.
