Le Fevre 1 (Particle data) - 2015 onwards
This data set contains validated particle pollution data for the year 2015 and ongoing for the North western Adelaide region in monthly files. Data was collected as 1 hour averages. Information provided is PM10 values expressed in micrograms per cubic metre (µg/m3), PM2.5 values expressed in micrograms per cubic metre (µg/m3), Ambient Temperature expressed in Degrees Celsius (°C) & Ambient Barometric Pressure expressed in Atmospheres (atm). Time is expressed as Time Ending Averages. Sampling method changed from TEOM to BAM in February 2016 and PM2.5 began being monitored.
Negative values occur from time to time and are a result of interferents such as moisture and semi volatile compounds in combination with the noise of the instrument.
Sampling method: Tapered Element Oscillating Microbalance (TEOM). Sampling Standard: AS3580.9.8 – 2001. Uncertainty in measurement: U95= ±1.5 µg/m3 for 1hr average.
Sampling Method: Beta Attenuation Monitor (BAM). Sampling Standard: AS3580.9.11 – 2008.
Field labels 2015: PM10 TEOM µg/m3 – Particulate Matter 10 microns or less, PM2.5 TEOM ug/m3 – PM2.5 Particulate Matter 2.5 microns or less, Temperature Deg C – Ambient Temperature, Barometric Pressure atm – Ambient Pressure.
Field labels 2016: PM10 BAM µg/m3 – Particulate Matter 10 microns or less, PM2.5 BAM µg/m3 – PM2.5 Particulate Matter 2.5 microns or less, Temperature Deg C – Ambient Temperature, Barometric Pressure atm – Ambient Pressure.
For comparison to National Environment Protection (Ambient Air Quality) Measure (NEPM) standards, any average calculated from this data is only valid if it is based on at least 75% of the expected samples in the averaging period. This applies to all averaging periods. Further information on data availability and computing averages can be found in the National Environment Protection (Ambient Air Quality) Measure Technical paper No. 5 – Data Collection and Handling.
