South Gladstone (Gladstone) 2013 hourly air quality and meteorological data

Period of operation: 1 January to 31 December 2013
Site location: Latitude: -23.8627; Longitude: 151.2704
AS/NZS 3580.1.1:2007 site classification: Neighbourhood
AS/NZS 3580.1.1:2007 compliance (pollutants): Complies fully
AS/NZS 3580.14:2011 compliance (meteorology): Complies, except for:

  • Isolated trees within 20 metres of the monitoring site.
  • Temperature and relative humidity sensors located 10 metres above ground level.
  • Rainfall measured by acoustic sensor.

Wind: Ultrasonic sensor

  • Height above ground level: 10 metres.
  • The wind direction sensor is aligned to magnetic north. The reported wind direction is referenced to true north by application of a magnetic declination correction of +10 degrees to the sensor output value.

Temperature: Capacitive ceramic sensor

  • Height above ground level: 10 metres.

Relative humidity: Capacitive thin film polymer sensor

  • Height above ground level: 10 metres.

Rainfall: Vaisala RAINCAP® precipitation sensor

  • Height above ground level: 10 metres.

Barometric pressure: Capacitive silicon sensor

  • Height above ground level: 10 metres.

Solar radiation: Pyranometer
Oxides of nitrogen: Chemiluminescence analyser operated in accordance with AS/NZS 3580.5.1—2010

  • Instrument output offset and/or scaled based on calibration and daily zero/span response data.

Sulfur dioxide: Ultraviolet fluorescence analyser operated in accordance with AS 3580.4.1—2008

  • Instrument output offset and/or scaled based on calibration and daily zero/span response data.

PM10/PM2.5: Dichotomous Tapered Element Oscillating Balance (TEOM) Model 1405-DF fitted with Filter Dynamics Measurement System (FDMS) operated in accordance with AS/NZS 3580.9.13—2013

  • The FDMS system compensates for the loss of semi-volatile components from the collected particulate matter.
  • Reported concentrations are uncorrected instrument output values.
  • Negative hourly PM10/PM2.5 concentrations down to -5 µg/m^3 resulting from instrument noise at low particle concentrations are reported.

Visibility-reducing particles: Nephelometer operated in accordance with AS/NZS 3580.12.1:2001

  • Detector spectral response centred at 530 nm.
  • Instrument output offset and/or scaled based on calibration and daily zero/span response data.
