Caloundra December month average year comparisons.

2016 36% above pre-Fukushima average
2015 35% above pre-Fukushima average
2014 32% above pre-Fukushima average
2013 36% above pre-Fukushima average
2012 43% above pre-Fukushima average

Report:

Even thought December 2016 had a lower December month average background compared to December 2012, the 2016 year average background level was the highest recorded here since Fukushima. The 2016 year average was 25% above pre-Fukushima recorded year average. At this Southern Hemisphere location, the local year average background has seen an increase in local background levels since Fukushima (see chart below). If we are seeing a steady increase in year averages here in the Southern Hemisphere, it suggests that locations in the Northern Hemisphere are seeing much greater yearly increases.

Caloundra November month average year comparisons.

2015 37% above pre-Fukushima average
2014 29% above pre-Fukushima average
2013 30% above pre-Fukushima average
2012 31% above pre-Fukushima average

Report:

November 2016 had the the second highest month average local background since Fukushima. At the beginning of the month warm tropical air flows reached this location, this created the initial spike in local background levels. Background levels dropped for the rest of the month, as more Southern air flows reached this location, from the Southern Ocean.

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.

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.
