Description

We discuss the radio emission from different parts of the cascade development for a cosmic-ray induced air shower hitting an ice surface. The in-air emission, in-ice emission, as well as the transition radiation are included in to the calculation. The induced signal should be detectable by the currently operating Askaryan radio detectors searching for the GZK neutrino flux. Where on one side the signal poses a possible background, if detected such a signal would immediately proof the on-site feasibility of the detection technique.
