This work was made possible by a grant from the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs, and was largely inspired by the international research effort on the environmental effects of nuclear war which was coordinated by the Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment under the leadership of Sir Frederick Warner. Useful encouragement and advice was received from R. C. Malone of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico. The authors are particularly indebted to the scientists who built the climate model at the former Australian Numerical Meteorology Research Centre and the present Bureau of Meteorology Research Centre, notably W. P. Bourke, T. L. Hart, B.J. McAvaney, J.L. McGregor, and K. Puri. In particular, B.J. McAvaney was responsible for the recent vectorization of the model for use on the Cyber 205 computer.
