Located on the edge of the near-pristine Southern Ocean, Tasmania is swept from the west and south by some of the cleanest air in the world. The quality of this air is then affected by emissions from industrial operations, motor vehicles, and commercial and domestic sources, as well as natural sources such as smoke from bushfires, salt spray, and wind-blown dust.
The Bureau of Meteorology web site, http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/averages/tables/ca_tas_names.shtml contains annual climatic averages within most regions of Tasmania.
For state level data on greenhouse gas emissions see Statistics - Tasmania.
