Variables used to categorise months into groups. Months marked with an asterisk are those in which data were collected in both years (2009 and 2010). Water level categories reflect the average range of values above the mean lowest water level: Highest = +1.6m to +2.0m; High = +0.9m to +1.69m; Medium = +0.2m to +0.89m; Low = 0m to +0.19m. Mean rainfall: High >150mm; Medium = 30mm to 149mm; Low = 10mm to 29mm; Very low <10mm.
