are two plots that show today's and yesterday's unvalidated air quality
data from the Mornington air station. These are indicative data are from a
The Mornington BLANkET station is a new-style configuration using solar power to operate. It has been undergoing testing and recording data at Mornington since mid 2013.
The station is located in the grounds of the EPA Division 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.
Please see the information about BLANkET and interpreting the data plots.

Yesterday's unvalidated air quality data from Morningtonair station
(If network issues have prevented connection to the station the plot
will show the most recently available complete day of data.)
The data for today are automatically updated every 10-15 minutes. If
the plot below does not change hit 'refresh' or 'reload' (or press F5)

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.
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.
National Environmental Protection Measure (NEPM) Air Standards
The 24-hour reporting standard for PM10 is 50 µg m-3. The 24-hour advisory reporting standard for PM2.5 is 25 µg m-3.
