Boat Creek (Gladstone) 2015 hourly air quality and meteorological data

URL: https://data.des.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/file/0022/83911/boatcreek-aq-2015.csv

Period of operation: 1 January to 31 December 2015
Site location: Latitude: -23.8200; Longitude: 151.1539
AS/NZS 3580.1.1 site classification: Neighbourhood
AS/NZS 3580.1.1 compliance (pollutants): Complies fully
AS/NZS 3580.14 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 +10 degrees to the sensor output value.

Temperature: Capacitive ceramic sensor
Relative humidity: Capacitive thin film polymer sensor
Oxides of nitrogen: Chemiluminescence analyser operated in accordance with AS/NZS 3580.5.1

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

Sulfur dioxide: Ultraviolet fluorescence analyser operated in accordance with AS 3580.4.1

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

PM10/PM2.5: Dichotomous Tapered Element Oscillating Balance (TEOM) Model 1405-DF fitted with Filter Dynamics Measurement System (FDMS) operated in accordance with AS/NZS 3580.9.13

  • The FDMS system compensates for the loss of semi-volatile components from the collected particulate matter.
  • Reported concentrations are uncorrected instrument output values.
  • Negative hourly PM10/PM2.5 concentrations down to -5 µg/m^3 resulting from instrument noise at low particle concentrations are reported.

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

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