Period of operation: 1 January to 31 December 2013
Site location: Latitude: -26.6917; Longitude: 153.1038
AS/NZS 3580.1.1:2007 site classification: Neighbourhood
AS/NZS 3580.1.1:2007 compliance (pollutants): Complies fully
AS/NZS 3580.14:2011 compliance (meteorology): Complies fully
Wind: Ultrasonic sensor

  • Height above ground level: 10 metres.
  • The wind direction sensor is aligned to magnetic north. The reported wind direction is referenced to true north by application of a magnetic declination correction of +11 degrees to the sensor output value.

Temperature: Capacitive ceramic sensor
Ozone: UV absorption analyser operated in accordance with AS/NZS 3580.6.1—2010

  • Instrument output offset and/or scaled based on calibration and daily zero/span response data.

Oxides of nitrogen: Chemiluminescence analyser operated in accordance with AS/NZS 3580.5.1—2010

  • Instrument output offset and/or scaled based on calibration and daily zero/span response data.

PM10: Tapered Element Oscillating Balance (TEOM) Model 1400AB operated in accordance with AS 3580.9.8—2001

  • Measurement values do not compensate for loss of semi-volatile components from the collected particulate matter.
  • Instrument output values are adjusted in accordance with US EPA equivalence designation method EQPM-1090-079 requirements (scaled by 1.03, offset by +3.0).
  • After adjustment, negative hourly PM10 concentrations less than -0.5 µg/m^3 are removed and concentrations between -0.5 µg/m^3 and 0.0 µg/m^3 are set to 0.0 µg/m^3.

Visibility-reducing particles: Nephelometer operated in accordance with AS/NZS 3580.12.1:2001

  • Detector spectral response centred at 530 nm.
  • Instrument output offset and/or scaled based on calibration and daily zero/span response data.
