Important Note: These data are indicative only, and are provided for public information. These unvalidated data cannot be used to determine if air quality standards have been exceeded.

Final data will be available on the EPA Division's website after validation. Visit our validated air quality data pages.

In keeping with legislative requirements the data are reported in Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) throughout the year.

PM2.5 is an indicator of smoke. These are the red square symbols in the plots. PM2.5 values below 5 µg m-3 signify very clear air. On a smoky winter's evening in Hobart or Launceston PM2.5 may be near 50 µg m-3 for several hours.
