Calculations of radio emission from neutrino induced showers in large volumes, are reported. The medium chosen is salt. We have performed simulations of neutrino-nucleon charged-current interactions using the HERWIG code, in the 1012 - 1017 eV energy range. For the simulation of the particle shower we have employed the GEANT4 and AIRES codes. The calculation of the radio signal was performed considering the distribution of the charge excess given by the longitudinal profile. The aim of this study is to investigate how different interactions can be discriminated in an experiment for detection of high energy particles based on the radio emission from the showers they initiate.
