Live air data

The Queensland Department of Environment and Science (DES) in collaboration with industry partners operates an air quality monitoring network across the state.

Data from the monitoring network is presented online as ambient concentration, air quality categories and smoke and dust health action levels which are updated hourly.

What’s new

The Department of Environment and Science is introducing smoke sensors to provide more Queensland communities with local indicative measurements and health action advice during smoke and dust events. This sensor network will continue to expand into more locations over time. Sensor measurements can be viewed in the data table under the new 'Sensor' tab, or via the smoke and dust health action levels page.

Hydrogen sulfide monitoring is being undertaken in the Swanbank area by the department in response to community concerns around odour.

Smoke and dust health action levels

There are elevated health action levels in:

Air quality data is available from 1 January 2016. Individual stations have been monitoring for different time periods so data may not be available for all possible times.

The data used to compile this air quality information comes directly from the department's air monitoring network and has only undergone a preliminary quality check. Data is retrieved from the stations every hour and after quality checks, is available approximately 1 hour later.

All data on this site is shown in Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).

  • If there is no data measured for a parameter, or data could not be retrieved from the monitoring station at this hour, no data is shown in the cell.
  • An offline message in a cell indicates that measurements are temporarily unavailable due to equipment servicing or failure. See network status.

About these Hydrogen sulfide parameters

Hydrogen sulfide (30min)

Hydrogen sulfide is a flammable, colorless gas that smells like rotten eggs. People usually can smell hydrogen sulfide at low concentrations in air ranging from 0.5 to 300 parts per billion (ppb). Hydrogen sulfide occurs naturally in crude petroleum, natural gas, volcanic gases, and hot springs. It can also result from bacterial breakdown of organic matter. Industrial sources of hydrogen sulfide include petroleum refineries, natural gas plants, petrochemical plants, coke oven plants, food processing plants, and tanneries.

The guideline for Hydrogen sulfide (30min) is 5ppb (1hr avg) and 108ppb (30min avg).

Hydrogen sulfide (30min) is measured in parts per billion.
