Air pollution levels measured at traffic hot spots : Brisbane urban corridor study
Ayoko, Godwin, Jamriska, Milan, Jayaratne, Rohan, & Morawska, Lidia (2005) Air pollution levels measured at traffic hot spots : Brisbane urban corridor study. In Wise, Convention (Ed.) Proceedings of 17th International Clean Air and Environment Conference, CASANZ (Clean Air Society of Australia & New Zealand), Hobart, Tasmania, pp. 1-7.
Air pollution levels were monitored continuously over a period of 4 weeks at four sampling sites along a busy urban corridor in Brisbane. The selected sites were representative of industrial and residential types of urban environment affected by vehicular traffic emissions. The concentration levels of submicrometer particle number, PM2.5, PM10, CO, and NOx were measured 5-10 meters from the road. Meteorological parameters and traffic flow rates were also monitored. The data were analysed in terms of the relationship between monitored pollutants and existing ambient air quality standards. The results indicate that the concentration levels of all pollutants exceeded the ambient air background levels, in certain cases by up to an order of magnitude. While the 24-hr average concentration levels did not exceed the standard, estimates for the annual averages were close to, or even higher than the annual standard levels.
