Surat Basin regional air quality, Queensland

August 31st, 2017

Coal seam gas (CSG) production has expanded rapidly in the Surat Basin in recent years, leading to an increase in the number of emission sources that may increase pollutant levels in the air. However limited information has been available about the levels of pollutants in the air, how these compare to other regions, and to air quality standards.

This project will involve a comprehensive assessment of air quality in the Surat Basin region in Queensland using air quality measurement network and modelling to identify the impact of CSG production activities on air quality in the Surat region.
