Funding for the Pb isotopes was provided to PDD by a grant from the Murray Darling Basin Commission. Some aspects of the research were also supported by ARC Discovery grant 0772180 awarded to PDD and colleagues. PDD is also grateful to Dr B. Delmonte who provided unpublished data and for numerous discussions at an early stage of the manuscript preparation. Mrs J. Shelley also provided much help with referencing and also commenting on the manuscripts during its many stages. Goodwin's work on Antarctic ice cores is collaborative with Drs T. Van Ornmen and M. Curran at the Australian Antarctic Division, and is partly supported by an Australian Antarctic Science (AAS) grant. Goodwin is grateful to Dr M. Curran for personal communication of preliminary sea-salt sodium concentrations from the Law Dome ice core during late Stage 3 and Stage 2 layers.
