Abstract: Atmospheric electrical conductivity, radon and its progeny concentrations are measured simultaneously at Mysore city (12° 18′′N, 76° 36′′E and 767 m above mean sea level), India. The concentrations of radon and its progeny are higher during nighttime compared to the daytime attaining maximum in the early morning (0400-0700 hrs IST). The electrical conductivity of the atmosphere also shows similar variations. The vertical variation shows a decrease of conductivity with increase in height. The weekly variations in conductivity show a higher value on Sundays compare to other weekdays. These results are discussed in terms of ionization rate due to radioactivity and meteorological parameters.
