The 2019-2020 bushfire period was the most severe on record, with approximately 5.5 million hectares (ha) of land burning across the State. This case study demonstrates the air quality impacts on rural NSW from widespread bushfire smoke on 5 to 7 January 2020. The case study analysed smoke impacts on hourly observations of particle levels at stations across the NSW Rural Air Quality Monitoring Network.
