Short summary
A radon long-range atmospheric transport modelling is set up from soil (exhalation) to soil (deposition of its progeny) and the consequent ambient gamma dose rate is evaluated. The whole is statistically assessed in regards to more than 15 000 gamma dose rate peaks. The model has proven to be of the correct magnitude, with room for substantial improvements. It may be used to validate an atmospheric transport modelling and to test any exhalation maps of radon at continental scale.
