Aerosol loss in air intake systems potentially hampers the application of one-filter systems for progeny-based atmospheric 222Radon (222Rn) measurements. The artefacts are significant when air has to be collected via long sampling lines, e.g. from elevated heights at tall tower observatories. Here we present results from a study, determining 222Rn progeny loss 10 from ambient air sampled via 8.2 mm inner diameter (ID) Decabon tubing (laboratory test) and from pre-installed 10 mm ID tubing at… CONTINUE READING
