Stations

This is an amateur volunteer run service. Human error can provide incorrect information, and equipment malfunction can produce false readings. Do not rely on, or take action upon information presented on this web site, without further research. The station charts below are refreshed every 10 minutes. There are two live charts for each monitoring station location. The 120 second logging charts full width are 2 hours, and the 3 hour average charts full width are 24 hours.

Chart details explained

If more than one station is showing an elevated detection, it is more statistically likely to be a genuine event.


Monitoring Station Locations: (Note: A red line from top to bottom of a chart, means the software has been reset.)

Caloundra, Sunshine Coast Queensland Australia ( Now has Radon level monitoring)

Petrie, Brisbane Queensland Australia.

Planetary Thermal Imbalance & Extreme UV Levels

A possible new cause for upper atmosphere damage is from the large Fukushima krypton-85 and other radioactive releases. This is creating a Planetary Thermal Imbalance & Extreme UV Levels. Planetary Thermal Imbalance is indicated by record breaking extremes in worldwide hot and cold temperatures. The large difference between hot and cold creates extreme weather events.

Despite CFC reduction in the atmosphere UV levels here can now frequently reach high to extreme levels here in spring and summer, for weeks at a time. During these events it is suggested, if possible, to stay out of the Sun, or wear good UV rated sunclasses and protective clothing when out in the Sun. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere also monitor your local UV levels. Local UV level links for each Australian monitoring station are now provided.

Caloundra Central 120 second logging chart
Location Weather Radar Rainfall UV


The average pre-Fukushima 4 year background level for Caloundra Central was ~0.10 uSv/hr. Last year's average was 0.118 uSv/hr. A sustained level above 0.15 uSv/hr, for any extended period of time, would be considered elevated for this location. This Geiger counter tube is sensitive, around 120 CPM is average for this location.

Caloundra Central 24 hour Radon Level Chart
This Radon monitor has been set up to establish if Radon, or other Alpha emitting radioactive isotopes are significantly affecting local background radiation levels, at the Caloundra monitoring station location. It is set up in a room in a wooden building on stumps, near the Pacific Ocean, so Radon levels should be low. Anything above 4 pCi/l for an extended period of time would be of concern.
Information on Radon levels and why it is of concern. Equipment used for monitoring Radon levels.
