Hong Kong's radiation level remains normal (16 June 2010)

 
     
 

According to the information collected by the radiation monitoring network of the Hong Kong Observatory, there is no abnormal changes in the local radiation level in Hong Kong.  Taking as an example the data collected at Ping Chau, the radiation monitoring station closest to Daya Bay Nuclear Power Station, the daily averaged radiation levels in May are within the normal range of fluctuation (please see attached table).

 
     
 

The Hong Kong Observatory will continue to monitor the local radiation level round-the-clock.

  Note: The ambient radiation dose rate may be affected by weather (precipitation, wind and air pressure .. etc).  From readings taken at various locations in Hong Kong during the period 1987-2007, the background ambient radiation levels may vary between 0.06 and 0.3 microsievert per hour.
