Chart air quality data

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.

    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.
    Rocklea station began monitoring air quality on 1 January 2000.

About Solar radiation

Measuring solar radiation is beneficial for modelling photochemical smog events, as the intensity of sunlight has an important influence on the rate of the chemical reactions that produce the smog. The cloudiness of the sky, time of day and geographic location all affect sunlight intensity.
