Experimental and theoretical studies of the influence of the intensity, amount and duration of liquid atmospheric precipitation on the formation of γ-background in the surface layer of the atmosphere are presented. It was observed that precipitation causes an increase in the γ-radiation dose rate in the form of bursts. In this case, the total amount of precipitation in an event determines the magnitude of the burst of the dose rate, and the intensity of precipitation determines the rate of increase in the dose rate of γ-radiation. A mathematical model, which establishes a quantitative relationship between the dose rate of γ-radiation and the intensity (amount) of liquid atmospheric precipitation has been developed and verified (R2 = 0.93).

Keywords: gamma-radiation, gamma-background, radon decay products, precipitation, atmosphere, mathematical model.

Представлены экспериментальные и теоретические исследования влияния интенсивности, количества и продолжительности жидких атмосферных осадков на формирование γ-фона в приземном слое атмосферы. Было замечено, что осадки вызывают увеличение мощности дозы γ-излучения в виде всплесков. В этом случае общее количество осадков в событии определяет величину всплеска мощности дозы, а интенсивность осадков определяет скорость увеличения мощности дозы γ-излучения. Разработана и проверена математическая модель, устанавливающая количественную связь между мощностью дозы γ-излучения и интенсивностью (количеством) жидких атмосферных осадков (R2 = 0,93).

Ключевые слова: гамма-излучение, гамма-фон, продукты распада радона, осадки, атмосфера, математическая модель.
