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.
