WIMP detectors in the 2020's will approach the sensitivity at which
scatters of natural neutrinos will create a background sufficient to
obscure the WIMP recoil signal. This is the so-called "Neutrino
Floor". This talk will discuss the nature of the neutrino floor and
the motivations to get to it, and to potentially go beyond it.
