Mount Barker station (particle data)
This dataset contains validated particle pollution data for the year 2022 to campaign finish for the Mount Barker region in monthly files. Data was collected as 1-hour averages. Information provided is PM10 and PM2.5 values expressed in micrograms per cubic metre (µg/m3), ambient temperature expressed in degrees Celsius (Deg C) & ambient barometric pressure expressed in atmospheres (atm). Time is expressed as Time Ending Averages and in Australian Central Standard Time (ACST).
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 (PM10): Tapered Element Oscillating Microbalance (TEOM).
Sampling method (PM2.5): Beta Attenuation Monitor (BAM).
Sampling Standard (PM10): AS 3580.9.8. Uncertainty in measurement: U95= ± 2 µg/m3 for 1hr average.
Sampling Standard (PM2.5): AS/NZS 3580.9.12. Uncertainty in measurement is U95 ± 2 µg/m3 for 1 hour average.
Field labels: PM10 TEOM µg/m3 – Particulate Matter 10 microns or less, PM2.5 BAM µg/m3 – Particulate Matter 2.5 microns or less, Temperature Deg C – Ambient Temperature, Barometric Pressure atm – Ambient Pressure.
