UPPER HUNTER DUST MONITORING Thursday 13-SEP-2012 23:00
today the dust health alarms were declared for Camberwell, SingletonNW,Maison Dieu and Mount Thorley. A dry cold front with wind speeds up to 40km/hr came through the region at noon and generated peak average hourly dust load of 195.6 PM10/micrograms/m3 at Mt. Thorley. However a dust load PM10 101.7 was already reached in the night at 01:00 when there was practically no wind. This shows that it was caused by coal mining activities during the night and that the wind is not the only cause of the Hunter dust.
