If neutrino oscillations in the solar interior are responsible for the suppressed B8 solar-neutrino flux measured by the Homestake Cl37 detector, then for certain values of neutrino mass difference and mixing angle, distinct day-night differences in the counting rate are expected due to propagation effects in the Earth. We describe the plans to measure day-night variations with the Cl37 detector, and present the results of calculations of Cl37 detector sensitivity and expected results. © 1987 The American Physical Society.
