We are grateful to many people. It would have been impossible to prepare this book without data from several members of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, and without the skilled preparation of the diagrams from Kevin Cowan and Val Lyon of the Geography Dept, Australian National University, Canberra, by permission of Professor Diana Howlett, head of the department. We have benefited from the computer skills of Tim Gilbert (Purdue University, USA), Steve Leahy (Geography Dept, ANU, Canberra) and Jenny Edwards (Forestry Dept, ANU, Canberra).
