Particles (PM10) monitoring at Ballarat – February 2002 to September 2003

As part of EPA’s air monitoring plan for regional Victoria, a study was conducted at Ballarat to investigate airborne particle levels. Airborne particles affect air quality throughout Victoria. Particles smaller than 10 micrometres (PM10) are one of the seven air pollutants for which Victoria has set air quality objectives and goals. Air quality in Ballarat is relatively good. On average, PM10 levels in Ballarat were lower than those in Melbourne and Geelong on any given day. They also tended to follow the same pattern, because of common weather influences. This publication discusses the monitoring and its results.
