The authors thank the following: Guntis Grauze assisted in the preparation and operation of the IR radiometer and edited the lidar data. Dr. Bruce Forgan, Bureau of Meteorology, Melbourne, arranged the surface flux data. Dr. C. Wooldridge, then at Macquarie University, took all-sky observations. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology provided the radiosonde data. Some of the later stages of analysis were supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Health and Environmental Research, Grants DE-FG02-92ER61373 and DE-FG03-94ER61748.
