From the abstract: In an exposure of 162 ton$\cdot$yr (145.1 days) the ratio of the number of observed inverse $\beta$-decay events to the expected number of events without disappearance is $0.611\pm 0.085 {\rm (stat)} \pm 0.041 {\rm (syst)} $ for $\bar{\nu}_e$ energies $>$ 3.4 MeV. The deficit of events is inconsistent with the expected rate for standard $\bar{\nu}_e$ propagation at the 99.95% confidence level. In the context of two-flavor neutrino oscillations with CPT invariance, these results exclude all oscillation solutions but the 'Large Mixing Angle' solution to the solar neutrino problem using reactor $\bar{\nu}_e$ sources.

5 - Solar Neutrinos

7Be Solar Neutrino Measurement with KamLAND, A. Gando et al. (KamLAND), Phys.Rev. C92 (2015) 055808, arXiv:1405.6190.
Measurement of the 8B Solar Neutrino Flux with KamLAND, S. Abe et al. (KamLAND), Phys. Rev. C84 (2011) 035804, arXiv:1106.0861.
A High Sensitivity Search for $\bar{\nu}_{e}$'s from the Sun and Other Sources at KamLAND, K. Eguchi et al. (KamLAND), Phys. Rev. Lett. 92 (2004) 071301, arXiv:hep-ex/0310047.
From the abstract: Data corresponding to a KamLAND detector exposure of 0.28 kton-year has been used to search for $\bar{\nu}_e$'s in the energy range $ 8.3 \, \text{MeV} < E_{\bar{\nu}_e} < 14.8 \, \text{MeV}$. No candidates were found for an expected background of $1.1{\pm}0.4$ events. This result can be used to obtain a limit on $\bar{\nu}_{e}$ fluxes of any origin. Assuming that all $\bar{\nu}_e$ flux has its origin in the Sun and has the characteristic $^8\text{B}$ solar $\nu_e$ energy spectrum, we obtain an upper limit of $ 3.7 \times 10^2 \, \text{cm}^{-2} \, \text{s}^{-1} $ (90\% C.L.) on the $\bar{\nu}_e$ flux. We interpret this limit, corresponding to $2.8{\times}10^{-4}$ of the Standard Solar Model $^8\text{B}$ $\nu_e$ flux, in the framework of spin-flavor precession and neutrino decay models.

6 - Geo-Neutrinos

Experimental investigation of geologically produced antineutrinos with KamLAND, T. Araki et al. (KamLAND), Nature 436 (2005) 499-503. http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v436/n7050/abs/nature03980.html;jsessionid=2B54E1F6E002C96A8C0F0275FB860964.
From the abstract: Assuming a Th/U mass concentration ratio of 3.9, the 90 per cent confidence interval for the total number of geoneutrinos detected is 4.5 to 54.2. This result is consistent with the central value of 19 predicted by geophysical models.
From the article: ... a 'rate only' analysis gives $ 25 {}^{+19}_{-18} $ geoneutrino candidates from the $^{238}\text{U}$ and $^{232}\text{Th}$ decay chains. Dividing by the detection efficiency, live-time, and number of target protons, the total geoneutrino detected rate obtained is $ 5.1 {}^{+3.9}_{-3.6} \times 10^{-31} $ $\bar\nu_e$ per target proton per year.
The 99\% confidence upper limit obtained on the total detected $^{238}\text{U}$ and $^{232}\text{Th}$ geoneutrino rate is $ 1.45 \times 10^{-30} $ $\bar\nu_e$ per target proton per year, corresponding to a flux at KamLAND of $ 1.62 \times 10^7 \, \text{cm}^{-2} \, \text{s}^{-1}$. On the basis of our reference model, this corresponds to an upper limit on the radiogenic power from $^{238}\text{U}$ and $^{232}\text{Th}$ decay of 60 TW.
