  • We demonstrate here the ability of TREND, a self-triggered antenna array, to autonomously detect and identify air showers induced by cosmic rays, from their radio emission, measured in the 50-100 MHz frequency range. TREND (Tianshan Radio Experiment for Neutrino Detection) is an array of 50 single polarised antennas, deployed over a total area of 1.5 km$^2$ on the site of the 21 cmA radio interferometer in the radio-quiet Tianshan mountains (China), that was running between 2011 and 2013.
