Short summary
High energy atmospheric physics includes terrestrial gamma-ray flashes, electron–positron beams and gamma-ray glows from thunderstorms. It requires appropriate models for the interaction of energetic particles with the atmosphere. We benchmark general purpose and custom-made codes against each other. We focus on basic tests, namely on the evolution of particles through air in the absence of electric and magnetic fields, providing a first benchmark for present and future custom-made codes.
