Caloundra October month average year comparisons.

2016 22% above pre-Fukushima average
2015 12% above pre-Fukushima average
2014 14% above pre-Fukushima average
2013 25% above pre-Fukushima average
2012 19% above pre-Fukushima average

Report:

There has been another up tick in background levels at this location for October 2016. This is the second highest October month average since the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe.

At this location in the winter months, air flows tend to come from the Southern Ocean, rather than from the tropical North. When this happens, local background levels tend to drop significantly, so compared to the summer months, winter local background levels approach pre-Fukushima levels. You can clearly see this seasonal variation in the yearly average background report, link below.

Caloundra September month average year comparisons.

2016 12% above pre-Fukushima average
2015 5% above pre-Fukushima average
2014 6% above pre-Fukushima average
2013 15% above pre-Fukushima average
2012 13% above pre-Fukushima average

Report:

There has been a small up tick in background levels at this location for September. September 2013 and 2012 were the only years that had higher background levels here, since the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe.

At this location in the winter months, air flows tend to come from the Southern Ocean, rather than from the tropical North. When this happens, local background levels tend to drop significantly, so compared to the summer months, winter local background levels approach pre-Fukushima levels.
