Quality Graph 1 - The quantity of contaminated material associated with each category of environmental risk plotted annually. This indicates the type of environmental risk associated with contaminated sites in the Australia Antarctic Territory and after several years will indicate whether it is changing. The measure of good environmental performance is that over time the quantity of material assessed as Environmental Risk - Serious will decrease, indicating prioritised remediation of the high risk sites.
