Characterisation and health impacts of the October 2002 dust event in Queensland: a preliminary investigation
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the characteristics of the October 23 2002 dust event and the results of a preliminary investigation into the health impacts of the event. The event was associated with significantly elevated PM10 and PM2.5 levels in several coastal cities of Queensland. Preliminary statistical analysis has indicated that despite the elevated levels of both PM10 and PM2.5, no detectable change in respiratory admissions or emergency department attendances was found. A statistically significant change was observed for cardiovascular admissions and this requires further investigation.
