Air Quality Data - Southern Tasmania ( Not 24 hour Average )

Table of near real-time PM2.5(ug/m3) and PM10(ug/m3) data from the Tasmanian EPA "BLANkET" air monitoring network.
Note: If the EPA "BLANkET" Data below shows "Not Available" (Then the EPA Website/Server is down).

Note: The above data is not quality controlled and displayed purely as a guide only. Also note in AEST (does not supply AEDT adjustments)

Note: The Table above does not reflect AQI ( Air Quality Index ).
The Air Pollution Level ( Color Text boxes ) show purely near real time data from EPA BLANkET air stations : Being PM2.5(ug/m3) and PM10(ug/m3) These 2 particles then have the standard breakpoint calculations applied to display the color and text. This is not the standard for AQI though we display it purely to see near realtime conditions, this should not be used for anything other. Official AQI info can be obtained from the links below each EPA BLANkET air station name in the above table. Official ( AQI ) requires additional particles to be included in the calculation and in varying ( time averages ) as shown in the table below. We have highlighted PM2.5(ug/m3) and PM10(ug/m3) which is what the above table depicts (though again not using averaged 24hr data).

AQI colors

EPA has assigned a specific color to each AQI category to make it easier for people to understand quickly whether air pollution is reaching unhealthy levels in their communities. For example, the color orange means that conditions are "unhealthy for sensitive groups," while red means that conditions may be "unhealthy for everyone," and so on.

Air Quality Index Meaning (Health Implications)
 Good  Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk.
 Moderate  Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
 Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups  Members of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is not likely to be affected.
 Unhealthy  Everyone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects.
Very Unhealthy Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected.
 Hazardous  Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects.
Air Quality Index Meaning - Cautionary Statement : for PM2.5(ug/m3)
 Good  None.
 Moderate  Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
 Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups  Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
 Unhealthy  Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should avoid prolonged outdoor exertion; everyone else, especially children, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
Very Unhealthy Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should avoid all outdoor exertion; everyone else, especially children, should limit outdoor exertion.
 Hazardous  Everyone should avoid all outdoor exertion.
