Abstract
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory instruments more than a cubic-kilometre of the deep glacial ice below South Pole Station, Antarctica, creating the world's largest water Cherenkov detector. With the addition of a low-energy detection array, DeepCore, completed in 2010, the observatory is sensitive to neutrinos with energies between $\sim$ 5 GeV and the EeV-scale. IceCube has now accumulated the world's largest sample of atmospheric neutrinos, providing the ability to perform precision
studies of the flux over the full energy range of the detector. We present sensitivities of atmospheric neutrino flux measurements from $\sim$ 6~GeV - 180~GeV with particular attention to the kaon-to-pion ratio. This analysis will fill in the overlapping regions of atmospheric neutrino flux measurements established at low energies by Super-Kamiokande and at higher energies by IceCube, bridging the current experimental results
