About this study

This report presents results and interpretation from a pilot study entitled Chemical and Physical Properties of Australian Fine Particles (AFP Study), carried out between August 1996 and December 1997.

This pilot study was commissioned by Environment Australia, and was carried out by the CSIRO and ANSTO in conjunction with the relevant agencies responsible for ambient air quality monitoring in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra, Launceston and Adelaide.

The study, although of limited duration, employed a comprehensive package of aerosol measurement equipment (listed in Table 2 in the body of the report) to generate a large database on a wide variety of chemical and physical properties of atmospheric aerosol particles measured at six locations across eastern Australia.
