Comments on the diagrams

Data evaluation:

No elevated levels of artificial radiation have been measured this week.

When the thickness of the water layer above the detector decreases to less than 1.50 m, the influence of cosmic radiation becomes so high that it cannot be compensated by the detector, which automatically interrupts data recording (quotient and spectrum) until the water level has risen again above 1.50 m. During the interruption, the computed artificial radioactivity data (red line, 2nd diagram) are automatically set to "not plausible" (blue line).
