Abstract. The proposed work describes research into the behavior of radon (VAR-volume activity of radon) excreted from the array. Radon migration and its selection from the array depends on the porosity, permeability and fractures in the array. A drastic change in the strength of an array and reset the elastic stresses by external forces (earthquake) occurs when certain changes in the structure of the array as the compressive and tensile strength of the array.
