Motivations and Techniques of a Surface Detector to Veto Air Showers for Neutrino Astronomy with IceCube at the Southern Sky
IceCube is currently the world’s largest high-energy neutrino observatory, built at the geographic South Pole. For neutrino astronomy, a large sample of well-reconstructed astrophysical neutrinos of
Study of electromagnetic backgrounds in the 25-300 MHz frequency band at the South Pole
Extensive air showers are detectable by radio signals with a radio surface detector. A promising theory of the dominant emission process is the coherent synchrotron radiation emitted by e+ e- shower
Radio Detection of Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays
The radio technique for the detection of cosmic particles has seen a major revival in recent years. New and planned experiments in the lab and the field, such as GLUE, Anita, LUNASKA, Codalema, LOPES
Study of the performance of the Pierre Auger Observatory and search for primary cosmic ray photons
Astroparticle physics is now entering the very exciting phase in which the efforts to enhance the detection capabilities of our instruments begin to turn out into clear answers. In this context the
Radio Experiments for Air Shower Detection
Already in the 1950s and 1960s, several experiments discovered that cosmic ray air showers emit radio pulses in the MHz regime [39], that the emission is linked to the Earth’s magnetic field, and

Radio emission from cosmic ray air showers - Coherent geosynchrotron radiation
Cosmic ray air showers have been known for over 30 years to emit pulsed radio emission in the frequency range from a few to a few hundred MHz, an effect that offers great opportunities for the study

TLDR
The results show that it should be possible to determine the nature and composition of UHECRs with combined radio and particle detectors, and to detect the ultrahigh-energy neutrinos expected from flavour mixing.
RICE limits on the diffuse ultrahigh energy neutrino flux
We present new limits on ultrahigh energy neutrino fluxes above ${10}^{17}\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{eV}$ based on data collected by the Radio Ice Cherenkov Experiment (RICE) at the South Pole from
