In this talk I will discuss how large volume detectors can be used to search for new physics generated via up-scattering within the Earth itself. The production of new particles can be sourced by dark matter, neutrinos, or any other particle capable of penetrating into the Earth's surface. I will focus on neutrino portals and their prospects at experiments such as Super-Kamiokande, Borexino and ICECUBE.
