Gamma Radiation Monitoring
1 April 2015 - 15 May 2020
Lead Scientist: Susana Barbosa
This gamma radiation monitoring campaign focus on the study of the temporal variability of the concentration of the noble gas radon (Rn-222), aiming to examine how it's influenced by meteorological conditions, how it impacts the local atmospheric electric field, and its association with the atmosphere's ionization and aerosol's concentration.
