Chart air quality data

What’s new

From 19 July 2024 to 23 August 2024 the Hydrogen sulfide monitoring unit at the Redbank weather station will be temporarily relocated to Abrahams Rd within the Swanbank industrial area to support quality assurance evaluation. Data captured during this period is relevant to Abrahams Rd in Swanbank.

    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.
    Springwood station began monitoring air quality on 1 October 2003.

Particle PM2.5 at Springwood, Monday 5 June 2023 about Particle PM2.5

Springwood station overview

The guideline for Particle PM2.5 is 50µg/m³ (1hr avg) and 25µg/m³ (24hr avg).

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

Some data is unavailable for this time period (25%, 6/24 records)

About air quality categories

Air quality categories are used to make it easier to interpret air quality data by reducing the complexity associated with different pollutant concentration units and air quality guideline values.

Each air quality measurement from a monitoring station is assigned an air quality category rating based on comparison of the measurement value against the relevant air quality guideline. Five colour-coded air quality categories are used, being ‘Good’ (green), ‘Fair’ (yellow), ‘Poor’ (orange), ‘Very poor’ (red) or ‘Extremely poor’ (dark red). Values greater than the air quality guideline will be appear as ‘Poor’, ‘Very poor’ or ‘Extremely poor’.

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 50µg/m³ (1hr avg) and 25µg/m³ (24hr avg).

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