November 17, 2014
8:35 pm INT HEPA DUST from two HEPA filters, one Ionizer/HEPA filter from October 7 minus 13 days on rad investigation in Death Valley, or 28 days total: 163.2 CPM which is 255% HIGHER than background. Compare this to the last 31-day period, where the same sampling took place yielding the same amount of material from the three machines, and the per day increase in beta and gamma radiation in the sample ROSE FOUR TIMES. The last period was also double the radiation of the period before meaning this AUTUMN HEPA DUST IS EIGHT TIMES HIGHER THAN LATE SUMMER SAMPLING. The radiation in Los Angeles Basin dust, not impacted by radon progeny here at Radiation Station Santa Monica, is eight times hotter now than in September. All the while, the EPA’s Los Angeles beta station has been down though other California stations show high beta radiation, especially San Diego.

October 31, 2014
9:45 pm EXT BG Badwater Basin at -109′ elevation: 44.1 CPM^^
October 23, 2014
1:50 pm EXT Death Valley BG at 689′ elevation (in shade and not direct Sun where the temperature hit 128 degrees Fahrenheit): 75.2 CPM. This was in the northern main valley in Death Valley called Mesquite Flat. Spot checks revealed that background in Mesquite Flat was nearly double that of the southern main valley in Badwater Basin. Our speculation is that the northern valley was impacted more by fallout from the Nevada Test Site less than 100 miles due east.
October 20 through October 31, 2014:
EnviroReporter.com took numerous interior and exterior spot readings, as well as carefully checking food and drink products as recorded in Eat Me. All tested normal except for a puddle of rain which was 50% above background, significant because water retards ionization making it harder to detect. We missed Death Valley rains unlike last year when the heavy precipitation was dozens of times background as we documented in Boreas Storm Packs Radioactive Punch.

11:05 pm INT BG Lone Pine CA at 3,748′ elevation: 62.7 CPM^^
October 11, 2014
9:25 pm INT OCEAN MIST DEW FROM SANTA MONICA BAY TAKEN 2 KM INLAND: 45.7 CPM^^ which is background (and very good news).
9:10 pm INT BG: 44.5 CPM^^
October 7, 2014
5:45 pm INT HEPA DUST from two HEPA filters, one Ionizer/HEPA filter and an exhaust fan’s blade dust buildup: 69.6 CPM^^ which is 64.9% HIGHER than background over a 31 day period. The last 35-day period was less than 43.6% above background September 8.

5:55 pm INT HEPA DUST from two HEPA filters, one Ionizer/HEPA filter and an exhaust fan’s blade dust buildup: 59.9 CPM^^ which is 43.6% HIGHER than background over a 35 day period. The last 17-day period was less than 14% above background August 4.
5:40 pm INT BG: 41.7 CPM^^
August 22, 2014
CONCLUSIONS: With dry sand coming in above BG but wet coming in below BG, our conclusion was that all was at background and Sea of Fuku Goo has not yet impacted this Southern California beach.
1:20 pm INT VEHICLE MANHATTAN BEACH PARKING LOT SOUTH OF PIER BACKGROUND: 36.5 CPM^^
1:05 pm EXT DRY SAND SOUTH OF MANHATTAN BEACH PIER (taken at 3 feet/1 meter above sand): ~54 CPM^^
1:00 pm EXT WET SAND SOUTH OF MANHATTAN BEACH PIER (taken at 3 feet/1 meter above sand): ~32 CPM^^
August 19, 2014
6:40 pm INT SOIL SAMPLE FROM SOUTHWEST MICHIGAN HIDDEN FROM THE ELEMENTS SINCE THE 1960s in double plastic bags: 55.4 CPM which is slightly above background which is indicative of the natural thorium and/or uranium in most soils. Test conducted to establish a background soil to measure against future Southwest Michigan soils impacted by precipitation perhaps impacted by rains tainted with Fukushima triple meltdowns fallout.
6:30 pm INT BG: 42.3 CPM^^
August 4, 2014
11:50 am INT HEPA DUST from two HEPA filters, one Ionizer/HEPA filter and an exhaust fan’s blade dust buildup: 45.3 CPM^^ which is 13.8% HIGHER than background over a 17 day period. This means it read at background as the Inspector’s conservative margin of error is +/-15%.
11:35 am INT BG: 39.8 CPM^^
August 3, 2014
4:10 pm RAIN gathered 0.5 to 1.0 hours of deposition: 45.8 CPM^^^ or essentially background at 15.1% which is the conservative limit of the Inspector’s margin of error, =/-15%.
3:30 pm BG: 39.8 CPM^^^
11:30 am RAIN from overnight accumulation with on new rain for two hours: 38.4 CPM^^^
11:15 am BG: 39.3 CPM^^^
August 2, 2014
11:16 pm RAIN: 51.6 cpm^^^ which is 31.6% HIGHER THAN BACKGROUND which is not enough in excess of the background to be of significance according to us.
11:00 pm KELP gathered by waterside in Playa Del Rey, California with Denise Anne & tested at Radiation Station Santa Monica: 48.2 CPM^^^ which is 23.0% HIGHER THAN BACKGROUND but is considered insignificant by us because of the ‘natural’ radiation inherent in the plant.
10:47 pm INT BG: 39.2 CPM^^^
July 17, 2014
6:00pm INT HEPA DUST from two HEPA filters, one Ionizer/HEPA filter and an exhaust fan’s blade dust buildup: 74.6 CPM^^ which is 64.7% HIGHER than background over a 31 day period. This is over 25% higher per day as the previous period that ended June 16, 2014. Los Angeles RadNet beta station still not functioning after working for three years after the Fukushima triple meltdowns began.
5:30pm INT BG: 45.3 CPM^^
June 16, 2014
1:00pm INT HEPA DUST from two HEPA filters and one Ionizer/HEPA filter: 69.3 CPM^^ which is 48.1% HIGHER than background over a 27 day period. This is lower than previous period that ended May 19, 2014. Los Angeles RadNet beta station still not functioning.
12:30pm INT BG: 46.8 CPM^^
May 19, 2014
3:11pm INT HEPA DUST from two HEPA filters and one Ionizer/HEPA filter: 65.0 CPM^^ which is 48.4% HIGHER than background over a 25 day period. This is lower than previous period that ended April 25, 2014. Los Angeles RadNet beta station still not functioning.
2:57pm INT BG: 43.8 CPM^^
April 25, 2014
10:20am RAIN SAMPLE: 45.2 CPM^^ which is BACKGROUND. Again, note how radon daughters (progeny) would show up in this sample if it were present, and it isn’t. No rain samples taken at Radiation Station Santa Monica are impacted by radon progeny meaning anything over background of significance is not impacted by these phenomena.
10:00pm INT RADIATION STATION SANTA MONICA BACKGROUND: 44.8 CPM^^
April 25, 2014
4:40pm INT HEPA DUST from two HEPA filters and one Ionizer/HEPA filter: 97.4^^ CPM^^ which is 116% HIGHER than background over a 44 day period. This is lower than previous period that ended March 12, 2014. US EPA RadNet Los Angeles beta monitor has ground to a halt providing accurate data. The second largest metropolitan in the United States is flying beta blind to the man-made radionuclides spewing into the Pacific from Fukushima then made airborne in choppy seas to become clouds then rain. All heading towards the West Coast including Los Angeles. RadNet stations in San Bernadino and Riverside are operating, thankfully, and show high beta readings but nothing like places like Amarillo Texas. Radiation Station Santa Monica down temporarily for routine maintenance.
4:25pm INT BG: 45.1 CPM^^
April 2, 2014
10:20am RAIN SAMPLE: 49.4 CPM^^ which is 15.7% HIGHER THAN BACKGROUND which is above the Inspector’s +/- 15% margin of error meaning it is a valid measurement and slightly above background. EnviroReporter.com considers this negligible.
12:10am INT RADIATION STATION SANTA MONICA BACKGROUND: 42.7 CPM^^
April 1, 2014
10:20am RAIN SAMPLE: 41.9 CPM^^ meaning background. Again see that there is no evidence, per usual, of any radon progeny impacting our readings. No readings performed at this site have been or will be affected by radon daughters.
10:10am INT RADIATION STATION SANTA MONICA BACKGROUND: 43.2 CPM^^
March 26, 2014
10:15am RAIN SAMPLE: 45.1 CPM^^ meaning background. Again see that there is no evidence, per usual, of any radon progeny impacting our readings.
10:00am INT RADIATION STATION SANTA MONICA BACKGROUND: 44.9 CPM^^
March 12, 2014
9:00pm INT HEPA DUST from two HEPA filters and one Ionizer/HEPA filter: 124.9 CPM^^ which is 184.5% HIGHER than background over a 57 day period. This is 1.6 times HIGHER per day than previous period that ended Jan. 12, 2014.
8:40pm INT BG: 43.9 CPM^^
March 1, 2014
7:15pm INT SANTA MONICA/WEST LOS ANGELES BASIN RAIN SAMPLE: 42.5 CPM^^ which is background. No indication of radon progeny. Radiation Station Glendale California reported 23% above background at 1:30pm in cloudburst rain. Commenter Alan from Altadena California, about 20 miles northwest of Glendale, wrote this to us illustrating the variability of radiation readings within Southern California in this storm: “I measured a 10 min average of 106 CPM from rain that dripped off my roof on 3-28-14. The 10 min average from background was 41 CPM. Later in the day I measured a 10 min avg. of 91 CPM from a puddle. I wish my readings were as low as the ones in Glendale the same day. I took these measurements in the foothills of Altadena, CA at 2000 feet above sea level.”
7:00pm INT BACKGROUND RADIATION STATION SANTA MONICA: 44.1 CPM^^
February 28, 2014
12:30pm INT SANTA MONICA/WEST LOS ANGELES BASIN RAIN SAMPLE: 47.1 CPM^^ which is background. No indication of radon progeny/daughters, per usual.
12:15pm: INT BACKGROUND RADIATION STATION SANTA MONICA: 42.6 CPM^^
February 27, 2014
10:45am: INT SANTA MONICA/WEST LOS ANGELES BASIN RAIN SAMPLE: 46.6 CPM^^ which is background. No indication of radon progeny/daughters, again.
10:30am INT BACKGROUND RADIATION STATION SANTA MONICA: 43.8 CPM^^
February 26, 2014
9:40pm INT SANTA MONICA/WEST LOS ANGELES BASIN RAIN SAMPLE: 42.5 CPM^^ which is background. Note that, as always here at RSSM, there is no indication of radon progeny/daughters. Note that when we do have overages here that radon progeny is not a factor as we have reported and discussed repeatedly.
9:30pm INT BACKGROUND RADIATION STATION SANTA MONICA: 40.5 CPM^^
February 6, 2014
6:10pm INT WEST LOS ANGELES BASIN RAIN SAMPLE: 44.8 CPM which is within the Inspector Alert’s +/- margin of error therefore meaning NORMAL BACKGROUND. But as we noted in our February 2 entry – no radon progeny. IF there had been so-called ‘radon daughters’ or decay products of radon, it would have registered in this rain, the beginning of a rare night of precipitation in the Los Angeles Basin.
5:55pm INTERIOR BACKGROUND RADIATION STATION SANTA MONICA: 40.5 CPM^^
February 2, 2014
7:00pm INT SANTA MONICA/WEST LOS ANGELES BASIN RAIN SAMPLE: 54.8 CPM^^ which is 19.4% HIGHER THAN BACKGROUND. This is a valid reading because it exceeds the Inspector Alert’s conservative +/-15% margin of error. However, this near background rain reading, like many before it that thankfully came in flatlining, illustrate a scientific point lost on Fukushima deniers: no radon progeny (daughters) is being detected or the samples from tonight and January 30, for example, or they would have had higher readings. The rain in Santa Monica and the Los Angeles Basin are not impacted by radon at all past an inconsequential amount. This radon potential map shows why, a fact we wrote about in the February 20, 2012 of the expose Beta Watch. So what’s the point in noting, once again, nothing over background? It’s to show the value of naught, zero, nothing. Radon progeny doesn’t generally impact the Golden State as this California radon map shows. With over 3,400 radiation tests at Radiation Station Santa Monica alone, we’ve measure ‘naught’ over background many times. What this all means it crucial to understanding the importance of our measurements: when we do hit something, like we did in Death Valley big time, we are hitting radiation coming from a source other than radon or natural background. Odds are that source is the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Japan with three ongoing and out of control nuclear meltdowns in progress. When our next Fukushima expose hits the virtual newsstands any day now, you’ll see why we are dealing with this radon daughter nonsense right now. Our exclusive discoveries are considerably hotter and more troubling than anything you’ve read anywhere that has been detected in the U.S. this year.
