Monitoring at the South Brisbane station began in 2001. Located adjacent to the South East Freeway, it provides information on air quality typically experienced at the boundary of major traffic corridors. The Department of Transport and Main Roads has funded the establishment of this site and its ongoing operational costs.

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.
