This study would not have been possible without the funding and technical support provided by the Department of Geography, University of Canterbury and the School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Management, The University of Queensland. The authors thank Dr. Deirdre Hart, Dr. David Neil, and Miss Mellissa Mackellar for their assistance with field measurements, and extend a special thank you to Dr. Jennifer Salmond for advice regarding the application of wavelets to atmospheric datasets. The staff of the Heron Island Research Station is also thanked for their assistance during this study.
