The Radon measurements are obtained from a sensor mounted on the Research Vessel RV Investigator of the Australian Marine National Facility (MNF) managed by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere (O&A), and processed by ANSTO's Institute for Environmental Research. The dataset includes quality-controlled data collected from 2014 onwards. The RV Investigator voyages where data was collected and processed are listed below in this record.
Potential users of the dataset are encouraged to discuss any aspects of its application with the contact persons listed in the dataset “Notes” tab: we are very enthusiastic and keen to support and participate in your science!

Radon data from the sensor onboard RV Investigator, installed and maintained by the ANSTO.
This data was collected on the Marine National Facility (MNF) RV Investigator voyages IN2014 - onwards. The data has been processed by Scott Chambers (ANSTO) and Alastair Williams (ANSTO).
Acknowledgment should be made of ANSTO and the listed contact persons in any publication, presentation or report which makes use of this dataset. If a publication makes substantial use of the data, the appropriate ANSTO research staff member(s) would expect to be asked to be co-author(s).
