Description

Extensive air showers are an interesting phenomena because they can provide information about, among many other things, the electric fields present in the atmosphere, an understanding of which is necessary to understand the concept of lightning.
To be able to deduce the electric fields from the radio footprint we have developed a macroscopic code that uses a parametrized shower profile. We compare the results for radio emission of microscopic CORSIKA/CoREAS simulation with those of the macroscopic calculation to optimize the parametrization. Particular attention is given to polarization observables, characterized by the Stokes parameters.
