Established in November 2020, the Bluff Station utilises a TEOM system. This station continuously measures concentration of air particles. The station was installed in response to community concerns about elevated dust levels due to surrounding land management practices impacting the Bluff community.

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.
