In Pizzoli (Abruzzo - Province of L'Aquila) in central Italy, emissions of Radon (Rn222) in a measurement station, with a frequency of once every 10 minutes, have been continuously monitored, from 2 November 2015 to December 14, 2015, using a sensor with ionization chamber. Moreover, all the environmental parameters, both inside and outside the station, have been recorded with the same frequency. In particular, the following values are measured: internal temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, air density. External temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, air density, speed and wind direction, amount of rainfall were detected too. The results were evaluated, and the relationship between radon levels and the seismic activity has not yet been discussed due to irrelevant seismic activity recorded in the period. There was a systematic relationship between the concentration of radon and the outdoor temperature but also with other factors such as wind and atmospheric pressure. Inside the detection station, the temperature and humidity are almost constant. The results show the potential of this acquisition technique in distinguishing the type of measured anomalies in Radon emissions.
