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.
    Memorial Park station began monitoring air quality on 1 July 2009.

Toluene at Memorial Park, Saturday 18 January 2020 about Toluene

Memorial Park station overview

The guideline for Toluene is 1000ppb (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

No wind direction data available to create wind rose charts.

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 Toluene

Toluene is a colourless organic liquid. Burning organic matter, such as wood, coal and petroleum products generates toluene, and it occurs naturally in crude oil. Motor vehicle emissions are the main source of toluene in the urban air environment, although evaporative losses from fuel storage facilities and service stations, as well as the use of toluene-based solvents and thinners are other contributors.

The guideline for Toluene is 1000ppb (24hr avg).

Toluene is measured in parts per billion.
