Radiographic analysis of the overburden inhomogeneities above 
the NOvA Near Detector, located -100m below the surface at Fermilab, 
will be presented. A continuous measurement of the underground cosmic 
muon flux by the NOvA detector (of size 4x4x15 meters) allowed us to detect 
temporal variations of the overburden, related to the soil excavation and the concrete 
mass accumulation during the ICARUS detector installation at Fermilab. 
Utilising the internal reflection symmetries of the NOvA detector acceptance, we are
able to obtain a differential radiographic maps of the spatial overburden 
variations directly from the measured cosmic data, without using the Geant
simulations or the open-sky data subtraction.
