All Air Monitoring Stations - Current Data Table

​The table below shows the most recent data available from the BLANkET air quality stations. These data are indicative​ of the current air quality at these sites. Note that the air stations are close to, but can be several kilometres from, the named town. 

Use the navigation on the left hand side of this page to access individual station pages for current data and graphs. A summary plot for all stations on the one page is available on the All Sites Graph page. See also the Air Quality Map​.

This table gives a rolling hour-average for PM2.5, as well as the most recently available (instantaneous) measurement of PM2.5 and PM10Interpreting BLANkET data

Tasmanian Department of Health air quality health categories are included in the table. For more information about these categories please visit the Department of Health Track Air Quality page (scroll to the bottom of the page for category information).

The categories are based on the hour-averaged PM2.5 value:

  • Good: up to 10 micrograms per cubic metre
  • Fair: 10 to 25 micrograms per cubic metre
  • Poor: 25 to 100 micrograms per cubic metre
  • Very Poor: over 100 micrograms per cubic metre​

BLA​​​​NkET

BLANkET is an EPA Tasmania program to obtain air quality measurements across Tasmania, for the monitoring of population exposure to smoke from woodheaters, planned burns, and bushfires. The air quality stations distributed around the State report real-time data to these web pages.

Indicative data

These data are indicative of the current air quality at these sites. The nature of the BLANkET measurements means that these data cannot be used to determine if air quality standards have been breached. The instruments are however calibrated against high quality data from instruments operated under the relevant Australian standards, and hence the BLANkET data will provide a good indication of when air quality standards were likely to have been breached.
