The ARGO-YBJ experiment has been designed to decrease the energy threshold of typical Extensive Air Shower arrays by exploiting the high altitude and the full coverage, consisting of a 6700m2 carpet of Resistive Plate Chambers located at Yangbajing (Tibet, PR China, 4300m a.s.l.). The lower energy limit of the detector (1 GeV) is reached with the ‘‘Scaler Mode’’, recording the counting rate at fixed time intervals. Here we present results concerning the search for emission from Gamma Ray Bursts (GRBs) in coincidence with satellite detections.
