Liverpool South-west air quality monitoring station

The Liverpool South-west air quality station (SWAQS) is located at Liverpool Girls High School, Forbes Street, Liverpool. It is situated in the centre of the Sydney basin in a mixed residential and commercial area.

Air quality monitoring region: research project station

Commissioned: January 2019

Latitude: 33° 55’ 8"S

Longitude: 150° 55’ 57"E

Elevation: 11.6 metres

Using data from this station, we provide hourly pollutant concentrations and an Air Quality Index (AQI).

The following air pollutants and meteorological variables are currently measured at this site:

  • Ozone (O3)
  • Oxides of nitrogen (NO, NO2 and NOx)
  • Sulfur dioxide (SO2)
  • Visibility using nephelometry
  • Fine particles as PM10
  • Fine particles as PM2.5
  • Wind speed, wind direction and sigma theta
  • Ambient temperature
  • Relative humidity

This is a special 12-month project to extend air quality monitoring in Western Sydney. This project will support the Clean Air and Urban Landscapes Hub.
