We survey the prospects for producing and detecting supersymmetric particles in high-energy cosmic-ray interactions. We find that the production and subsequent decay of light (3 GeV) gluinos can lead to fluxes of neutral, weakly interacting superparticles, photinos or scalar neutrinos, which might be detected in large, underwater neutrino detectors. We identify several reactions, INgIqX in the 10"100-TeV region and the resonant process Iee-WI-, which can lead to measurable reaction rates in the discussed 105-kiloton DUMAND-type detector.
