Chart air quality data

What’s new

Queensland is now reporting hourly averages for PM2.5, PM10 and TSP (instead of a 24 hour running average).

Queensland Health has created 5 health action levels, presented in a colour indicator scale, to provide advice on what activities you can do, based on the hourly average concentrations of PM2.5 in the air.

    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.
    South Gladstone station began monitoring air quality on 1 January 2000.

Particle PM10 at South Gladstone, Thursday 2 July 2020 about Particle PM10

South Gladstone station overview

The guideline for Particle PM10 is 120µg/m³ (1hr avg) and 50µg/m³ (24hr avg).

None of the data is validated (0% validated, 0/24 records)

Legend to air quality index colours about index values

  • Very good 0–33
  • Good 34–66
  • Fair 67–99
  • Poor 100–149
  • Very poor >150

None of the data is validated (0% validated, 0/48 records)

About air quality index values

Our scientists create an air quality index by converting measured pollutant concentrations into index values which make it easier to interpret air quality data by reducing the complexity associated with pollutant concentrations.

The index value is the pollutant concentration expressed as a proportion of the National Environment Protection Measure for Ambient Air Quality (Air NEPM) standard or the Environmental Protection (Air) Policy 2008 (Air EPP) objective.

About Particle PM10

Airborne particles less than 10 micrometres in diameter, referred to as PM10, can be hazardous to human health or cause a nuisance when present in the air at elevated levels. They are capable of penetrating the lower airways of humans and can cause possible negative health effects.

The guideline for Particle PM10 is 120µg/m³ (1hr avg) and 50µg/m³ (24hr avg).

Particle PM10 is measured in micrograms per cubic metre.
