Southern Hemisphere November 2019 Background Level Report

Station location

http://sccc.org.au/monitoring/Australian-Map.jpg

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

November 2019 day average background chart. (Month Average 110 cpm)

In the warmer months more tropical air flows to this location compared to the colder months. This November, our spring, we saw a small increase in local background levels compared to the winter months. Spring and summer up ticks in local background have become the new normal here since Fukushima. For comparison, this July’s month average was 107 CPM.

September 2019 day average background chart. (Month Average 110 cpm)

There has been a slight increase in month average background level for September. This seasonal variation in local background levels has become a normal trend here since Fukushima. As we get more tropical air flows at this location in the warmer months, the local background increases, and then drops back down again in winter.
