for the poster entitled:
European 222RN flux map for atmospheric tracer applications.

by Szegvary, T.; Conen, F.; Leuenberger, M.C.

Thomas is a PhD student at the Institute of Environmental Geosciences at the University of Basel. The aim of his research is to establish a method for better mapping abilities of the 222-Rn flux source term while using a commonly measured proxy, terrestrial gamma dose rate. 222-Rn flux is commonly used as a natural tracer for climate models. To improve such models a detailed source term of the 222-Rn flux is necessary.
