Chart air quality data

    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.
    Cannon Hill station began monitoring air quality on 1 February 2014.

Particles TSP at Cannon Hill, Monday 4 March 2024 about Particles TSP

Cannon Hill station overview

The guideline for Particles TSP is 250µg/m³ (1hr avg) and 80µg/m³ (24hr avg).

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

Some data is unavailable for this time period (4%, 1/24 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 Particles TSP

Airborne particles up to about 100 micrometres in diameter are referred to as TSP (total suspended particles). These particles are generated by combustion and non-combustion processes, including windblown dust, sea salt, earthworks, mining activities, industrial processes, motor vehicle engines and fires.

The guideline for Particles TSP is 250µg/m³ (1hr avg) and 80µg/m³ (24hr avg).

Particles TSP is measured in micrograms per cubic metre.
