This page contains real-time data from the BLANkET air station at Mornington for today and yesterday. The station is located in the grounds of the EPA Tasmania store in Mornington Road. Some instances of short-duration elevated PM10 are likely due to vehicle movements on a nearby unpaved road during business hours.
The plots below show PM10 and PM2.5 indicative data (top panel) and meteorological data (lower panel) measured today at Mornington. The most recent measurements are shown in the boxes to the right of the plots below.
T - air temperature
RH - relative humidity
WS - wind speed
WD - wind direction
RF - daily rainfall
P - mean sea-level pressure (MSLP)
The meteorological data are provided as a guide to interpreting the air quality data. They should not be used in place of Bureau of Meteorology data for determining weather conditions in a given region.
Please Note: subject to network connectivity, this plot will be updated approximately every 10 minutes during the day. Use the 'Refresh' or 'Reload' button on your browser (or press F5) to refresh the plot. If networking issues do not allow real-time access on a given day the plot will show the most recently available data.
