Air quality data

Air quality data for NSW is displayed using the Air Quality Index (AQI) scale and is updated hourly.

 

           We are currently monitoring one incident at Kooragang Island. Details are on our Special projects monitoring page.

           The Vineyard monitoring site has been decommissioned and there will be no data until a new site is established.


Disclaimer: The data used in the compilation of this page have undergone only preliminary quality assurance checks. These data may require modification during final stages of validation as a result of calibration changes, power failures, instrument failures etc.
