We explore the physics potential of the NuMI beamline with a detector located 10 km off axis at a distant site (810 km). We study the sensitivity to sin 2 2 θ 13 and to the C P -violating parameter sin δ as well as the determination of the neutrino mass hierarchy by exploiting the ν μ → ν e and ν ¯ μ → ν ¯ e appearance channels. The results are illustrated for three different experimental setups to quantify the benefits of increased detector sizes, proton luminosities, and ν e detection efficiencies.
