Air quality monitoring

The Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority (NT EPA) monitors air quality at stations in Winnellie and Palmerston. 

These stations monitor a number of different pollutants and collect meteorological data.

Air quality information from the stations is available in near real time on the Northern Territory Air Quality Network website

The main pollutant in the Top End region is smoke from distant and local vegetation burning during the Dry Season. 

This is represented as particulates of less than 10 microns (PM10) and less than 2.5 microns (PM2.5).

Go to the NT EPA website for more information on air pollutants and air quality data reports.
