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.
    The Gap station began monitoring air quality on 1 April 2009.

Copper at The Gap, Friday 26 February 2021 about Copper

The Gap station overview

The guideline for Copper is 50µg/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)

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

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 Copper

Copper is one of a number of essential metals, and a small daily intake is required to maintain a healthy life. However, ingesting high levels of the element can lead to adverse health effects, as some of its compounds are toxic.

The guideline for Copper is 50µg/m³ (24hr avg).

Copper is measured in micrograms per cubic metre.
