Air quality in the Newcastle region was generally good during autumn 2020. Daily particle levels were within national benchmarks from 85% of the time at Stockton to 100% of the time at all other sites. Stockton particle levels are affected by sea salt. Hourly particle levels were in the good to fair air quality categories from 98.1% to 100% of the time throughout the region. Regional air quality was greatly improved compared to the previous two years, as drought conditions weakened throughout most of New South Wales following good rainfall events from February 2020.
