Gamma Radiation Monitoring

1 April 2015 - 15 May 2020

Lead Scientist: Susana Barbosa

Observatory: ENA, HOU

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.
