Station overview—Hopeland

Monitoring at Hopeland began in February 2015 to assess air quality in close proximity to an area of intensive coal seam gas (CSG) production run by Origin Energy. This monitoring station is managed by CSIRO’s GISERA as part of the Surat Basin Air Quality study. Environmental consultants operate the monitoring network on behalf of CSIRO/GISERA. Method and data validation is overseen by CSIRO.

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.
