abstract Rural AQMU network data. | | Instruments used | | Multi-channel DustTraks are used for stations reporting TSP, PM10 and PM2.5. Single-channel DustTraks are used for stations reporting TSP only. An ongoing upgrade is underway to replace all NSW sites with multi-channel instruments. | | Disclaimer | | 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. | | Best efforts have been made to ensure that data from these instruments is consistent with measurements from compliance instruments. However, note that instrument accuracy does not meet strict Australian Standards, therefore care must be taken in interpreting the data compared with Air NEPM standards without additional information. Reported data has only undergone preliminary automated checks, and further manual validation is performed for data stored in the DPIE database. | | Data is reported in Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST). | See https://www.dpie.nsw.gov.au/air-quality/rural-air-quality-network-live-data for more information. | Need to check if this includes rural and regional sites.
