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

Caloundra 2nd January 2018 - Another massive Radon spike was detected and reached up to 10 pCi/L. At the peak of this 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 event was from the tropics.

Caloundra January month average, year comparisons.

2018    45% above pre-Fukushima average
2017    42% above pre-Fukushima average
2016    41% above pre-Fukushima average
2015    40% above pre-Fukushima average
2014    41% above pre-Fukushima average
2013    52% above pre-Fukushima average
2012    43% above pre-Fukushima average

On the 15th January there was a marked drop in background levels, as the wind direction changed to a Southerly from the Southern Ocean. This dynamic has been constant since Fukushima. Whenever Southern Ocean air flows reach this location, we get a significant drop in background levels.

Cairns North Queensland January background Report - Fairly flat, the little spikes were coincidental with some thunderstorms and good rainfalls.

The Cairns monitoring station has two GammaScout Geiger counters.
