Mastering Measurement Uncertainties

Measurement outcomes are impacted by:

  • Diurnal Cycles
  • Background Radiation
  • Thoron
  • Protocols & Methods
  • Device Considerations
  • Decay Factor
  • Equilibrium Ratio

Consideration 1 – Thermal Effects of Diurnal Cycles

 A diurnal cycle is any pattern that recurs every 24 hours as a result of one full rotation of the Earth. §During this diurnal cycle in which day and night are created, the Earth experiences a thermal effect as it rotates on its axis.
