Radon Spike, East Coast of Australia
#1
Caloundra 3rd December 2017 - A massive local Radon spike is occurring and reached up to 8 pCi/L. At the time of the largest spike it was very humid, but not raining, and the local Radon monitor was in a wooden building with the door and some windows open. Under these environmental monitoring conditions, this is a very large spike in local Radon levels. The wind direction during the Radon spike was easterly off the Pacific Ocean.

It is important that you understand that the local Radon charts are measuring Radon concentration in the air. The World Health Organisation has recommended a radon reference concentration of 100 Bq/m3 (2.7 pCi/L). The European Union recommends that action should be taken starting from concentrations of 400 Bq/m3 (11 pCi/L) for older dwellings and 200 Bq/m3 (5 pCi/L) for newer ones.

The significant local increase in Radon levels started in October, which was possibly a precursor to this up tick in earthquake activity in the New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and Fiji regions of the Pacific Ocean. The late November and into early December Radon levels have been the largest local detections so far. If you live locally it would be wise to keep an eye on earthquake activity.
