High time-resolved radon progeny measurements in the Arctic region (Svalbard islands, Norway): results and potentialities

Roberto Salzano et al.

Data sets

Components of radon progeny in the air at the Gruvebadet observatory in Ny-Alesund (Svalbard islands, Norway) during the melting and the summer season in 2015 Roberto Salzano, Antonello Pasini, Antonietta Ianniello, Mauro Mazzola, Rita Traversi, and Roberto Udisti https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1246643

Short summary
The radon progeny can describe the circulation of air masses in the Arctic region, evidencing a seasonality and stability dynamics that can influence the persistence of pollutants in the lower layer of the atmosphere. This paper, for the first time, considered high-time resolved radon-progeny measurements in the Arctic region. These data were used for tracing air masses in terms of age, origin, permafrost dynamics, seasonality and local effects.
