Short summary
We investigate in an innovative way the dynamics of radon emanation in a seismically active area. We analysed 3 years of data, collected during a long-term radon monitoring experiment. The complexity of the relationships among the investigated variables led us to consider the problem both from a phenomenological point of view and by means of original numerical analyses. Different approaches converge on the existence of a physical relation between soil radon emanation and seismicity.
