DATA

2016/01/31 at 8:38 pm

I just received the day average comparison chart of Cairns and Caloundra, for January 2016

The January day average peaks at Caloundra were less than those recorded for Cairns, see the Cairns and Caloundra Comparison chart below. Cairns is a lot closer to the equator than Caloundra.

Cairns January 2016 Report – “Some spikes at the beginning of January associated with very hot weather. The rest of the month stayed fairly flat, close to my baseline of 0.125 uSV/hr.”

Thanks to the Cairn’s station operator for providing this day average Cairns and Caloundra comparison chart. Cairns is red in this comparison chart, and Caloundra is yellow.

January 2016 Southern Hemisphere Background report (41% above average)

Alert Caloundra 31th January 2016 – The background here has seen a steady increase during January, reaching 64% above average on the 31st January. The 24 hour, 60 second logging chart for the day, showed a significant increase in background levels between 9am to 2.30pm. It was cloudy, but not raining at the time.

Three minutes and 15 second into this Suspicious Observer video weather report, you will see the surface air flow turn down along the East Coast of Australia from the tropics. Generally we see increased background levels at the monitoring station here, in the warmer months, when we get more air flow from the tropics.

Southern Hemisphere 2015 Year Background Radiation Report.

Summary

2015 – was 18% above the 4 year pre-Fukushima local average.
2014 – was 20% above the 4 year pre-Fukushima local average.
2013 – was 22% above the 4 year pre-Fukushima local average.
2012 – was 21% above the 4 year pre-Fukushima local average.

In 2015 test results indicated some of the increase in November and December local background levels were possibly from increased Southern Hemisphere volcanic activity. Even taking this into account, the data indicates a gradual decline in local background atmospheric detections from the previous year’s peaks, since Fukushima.

This short animation of Northern, and Southern Hemisphere air circulation, shows why we can get atmospheric detections so far south.

I have also conducted a number of local beach sand, seaweed, and Pacific Ocean plankton tests. If any Fukushima Pacific Ocean Cesium contamination has reached this location, it is at levels below the detection sensitivity of the test equipment used here.

The scintillator test equipment used here is way more sensitive than an average Geiger counter, but it is not as sensitive as the very expensive test equipment available to research or university scientists.

Detailed local background level month and year charts from 2007 to 2015, can be found here.

December 2015 down pipe rain water filter test

The December 2015 down pipe rain water filter test shows the usual Lead Pb-210 and Beryllium Be-7. December 2015 rainfall was 54mm. This is less than the rainfall for November 2015 76mm, but there was more Pb-210 detected in December.
