The Devonport Air Monitoring Station is the fourth NEPM station to be established in Tasmania. A suitable location in Devonport was identified in 2011. Preliminary installation work commenced in late 2012 and the station, containing reference PM10 and PM2.5 instruments and an indicative dustrak (optical particle counter) to measure indicative PM2.5 commenced live operation in early 2013.
The plots below show unvalidated TEOM raw particulates data from the Devonport air station for today and yesterday. Real-time dustrak data for Devonport can be found
Graphs of annual validated data are available via the
validated data portal.
Today's unvalidated air quality data from Devonport air station
The National Environment Protection Measure standards for the species measured at the GAMS are:
- PM10 (day average) - 50 ug/m3
- PM2.5 (day average) - 25 ug/m3 (Advisory reporting standard)
Please Note: subject to network connectivity, this plot will be updated approximately every 15 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.
Yesterday's unvalidated air quality data from Devonport air station
The yesterday's data plot shows the real-time values measured for the whole day yesterday. If network issues have prevented data updates, the plot will show the most recent complete day of data.
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.
In keeping with legislative requirements the data are reported in Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) throughout the year.
