Station overview—Boyne Island

Location of Boyne Island

Map marker is indicative only. It does not reflect the exact location of the station.
See all stations in Gladstone region.

Established in October 2008, the monitoring station is located in the northern part of the Boyne Island residential community.

Modelling indicates this area of Boyne Island and Tannum Sands is likely to experience the greatest impacts from industrial air emissions.

As part of the Clean and Healthy Air for Gladstone Project, the station measured levels of a range of hazardous air pollutants including heavy metals and organic compounds between November 2008 and June 2010.

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.
