Grafton air quality monitoring station

The Grafton air quality monitoring station is located at Grafton Primary Industries Institute, Grafton, in the New South Wales Northern Rivers region.

Air quality monitoring region: North Coast

Commissioned: November 2019

Latitude: 29° 37' 14"S

Longitude: 152° 57' 48"E

Elevation: 73 metres

The following air pollutants are measured at this station:

  • Total Suspended Particles (TSP)
  • Fine particles as PM2.5
  • Fine particles as PM10

Data from the site is reported as hourly updated particle concentrations.

Instrument limitations – Most rural network stations use mid-cost indicative monitors which respond to all aerosols including dust, sea salt and smoke. Single-channel DustTraks (TSP only) will also respond to fog. Care must be taken in interpreting the data compared with Air NEPM standards without additional information.
