Resumen
Radon monitoring was carried out at Palampur and Dalhousie stations in Kangra and Chamba valleys using emanometry fordiscrete measurements of time-series radon data since 1992 under Himalayan Seismicity programme of Government of India. Thecorrelation of radon data with micro-earthquakes recorded by Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) network during the timewindow 1992-1997 shows a rising trend both in microseismicity as well as radon in Kangra and Chamba valleys of N-W Himalayanregion under investigation.The effect of meteorological parameters (temperature, rainfall, humidity and wind velocity) on radon emanation was studied.The correlation co-efficients of radon data and the meteorological parameters recorded at Palampur suggest that temperature,rainfall and humidity have positive correlation, whereas wind velocity has negative correlation with radon.
