Chart air quality data

What’s new

Queensland has moved to using air quality categories rather than an air quality index as part of initiatives to ensure consistent air quality reporting across Australia. The category system colours provide users with general guidance on exposure risk during pollution events. Read more about air quality categories.

Health action level information is now presented using an improved layout on a separate smoke and dust health action levels page. The health action level ranges have been updated to reflect the latest Queensland Health recommendations.

The NEPM guidelines for ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide have been updated to represent the latest national standards.

About Particle PM2.5

Airborne particles less than 2.5 micrometres in diameter, referred to as PM2.5, 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 PM2.5 is 25µg/m³ (24hr avg).

Particle PM2.5 is measured in micrograms per cubic metre.
