dc.description.abstractThe analysis of high-energy background radiation (0.1 – 2 MeV) enhancements during eight winter thunderstorms and ¿ve summer storms in the Ebro delta region in the northeast of Spain is presented. For the ¿rst time, high-energy radiation counts, precipitation, radar re¿ectivity, and very high frequency lightning detections to infer charge regions altitude have been analyzed in order to ¿nd out what produces the measured background radiation increments associated with storms. The good agreement between radar re¿ectivity and precipitation with increases in background radiation counts coupled with the spectrum analysis comparing rain/no rain periods suggests that radon-ion daughters play a major role in the radiation increments reported. No evidence has been found supporting that measured background radiation enhancements can be produced by storm electric ¿elds. Finally, a single case of a high-energy radiation increase was prior to a cloud-to-ground lightning stroke, which reinforces the theory that a lower positive charge layer’s existence is important for the production of Terrestrial Ground Enhancements.
