We present the catalog of thunderstorm ground enhancements (TGEs) collected by multiyear 24/7 monitoring of various particle fluxes, environmental parameters, and near-surface electric fields on the slopes of Mt. Aragats in Armenia. Previously, we publish in Mendeley the subsets of TGE events abruptly interrupted by lightning discharges [1], short particle bursts observed by Aragats neutron monitor (ArNM, [2]), TGEs with electron content [3], TGEs abruptly terminated by a lightning flash, distance to which was observed by both EFM-100 sensor on Aragats, and - worldwide lightning location network (WWLLN) network [4], and TGEs accompanied with light radiation in the lower atmosphere [5]. In the posted dataset are shown 10 parameters of 288 TGEs observed in 2013-2021 (the total number of TGEs from 2008 to 2021 is 564). However, from the links to each TGE event, all multivariate measurements from the hundreds of registration channels are available. We present our measurements on a user-friendly site allowing further correlation analysis by colleagues worldwide. The users are provided with multivariate data to continue the research and come to new interesting physical results. The survey of TGE physics and TGE selection procedure users can find in [6], the details of Aragats station facilities, and data analysis methods in the WiKI section of ADEI and in references [7-9].
