Real-time Air Quality Data - Huonville

​​This page contains real-time data from the BLANkET air station at Huonville (Southern Tasmania) for today and yesterday. The station is about 300 metres from the town centre and was installed in December 2009.

It is expected that it will be impacted by smoke from local domestic wood heaters. Data from the Judbury BLANkET station (9km upriver to the west) will be compared to assist in distinguishing smoke events local to Huonville from more widespread events.
