Meteorological and radon concentration data referring to a measurement campaign carried out in Urbino, Central Italy, are
reported and discussed. This study presents a method allowing monitoring of the vertical atmospheric stability using continuous
measurements of radon gas near ground. In particular radon evidences the presence of temperature inversion such as the formation
of the nocturnal stable layer and gives information on the vertical turbulence and the motion of air masses. This technique
is very useful in describing the temporal evolution of the pollutants in the atmosphere.
