This paper reported the experimental results of ion current under different temperatures and relative humidity using long range alpha detector (LRAD). An approximation relation between the measuring values, temperatures and relative humidity has been obtained using the linear multiple regression method. The experimental results have shown that the measuring values decrease with the increase of temperature and humidity. The influence of humidity on results outweighs that of temperatures. And both temperature and humidity are obviously negative correlated with measured values. Further experiments will be performed to confirm the coupling effects of temperature and humidity and reported later.
