Abstract
The Fermilab Short Baseline Neutrino program has been designed to answer several outstanding questions in the field of neutrino oscillation physics. From the LSND result to the MiniBooNE low energy excess, numerous anomalous results can be tested with the Short Baseline Program's configuration of three neutrino detectors. Each detector employs liquid argon time projection chambers to enable superior electron gamma separation needed to untangle the various questions surrounding neutrino physics. MicroBooNE is currently taking data, and has already begun the process of reconstructing and analyzing events in liquid argon TPCs. While MicroBooNE will be able to determine the nature of MniBooNE's low energy excess, it will be up to the combination of Icarus and the Short Baseline Near Detector to definitively prove or disprove the existence of large $\Delta m^{2}$ oscillations.
