We consider the density field f(x) generated by a volume source μ(y) in D which is a domain in R3. For two disjoint segments γ, Γ1 on a straight line in R3 \ D, we establish a conditional stability estimate of Hölder type in determining f on Γ1 by data f on γ. This is a theoretical background for real-use solutions for the determination of air dose rates of radioactive substance at the human height level by high-altitude data. The proof of the stability estimate is based on the harmonic extension and the stability for line unique continuation of a harmonic function.
