Focus area :

Surface measurements of atmospheric radioactivity


Executive Summary :

Under this project, the atmospheric radioactivity, electric field, air-earth current and aerosols near the earth? surface were experimentally studied. These were then used for model studies of the lower atmosphere, variation of radioactivity, ionisation, aerosols and electrical conductivity were also studied. The scientific problems like effect of aerosols on conductivity, development of ion-aerosols model for prediction of conductivity were addressed.
