Last 2016 report:
18th December 2016 – 8 firms to be fined for importing food from radiation-affected areas
Taipei, Dec. 18 (CNA) Fines will be imposed on eight companies which have been found to have imported foods from Japan’s radiation-affected areas, Taiwan’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said Sunday.
As of Sunday, a total of 39 Japanese food products and nearly 60,000 items have been pulled from store shelves in Taiwan, with many of them being soy sauce and wasabi packets that go with Japanese natto, or fermented soybeans.

Southern Hemisphere Year Background Report For 2016.

Station location

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

Caloundra day average chart for December 2016. (36% above average)

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

Even though 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.
