Latitude: 34⁰ 49' 31.44'' S

Longitude: 147⁰ 30' 35.64''E

Elevation: 278.7 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.
