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.
    Coastguard station began monitoring air quality on 1 December 2007.

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 Arsenic

Elemental arsenic does not occur naturally but its compounds are widespread, often occurring with metal-bearing ores and released during processing. It is widely used in timber preservatives and pesticides, and is well-documented as an occupational hazard.

The guideline for Arsenic is 0.3µg/m³ (24hr avg).

Arsenic is measured in micrograms per cubic metre.
