What does this data set describe?

Title:
Burdekin River Runoff Reconstruction from Fluorescence Data in Havannah and Pandora Reefs for 1644 to 1980
Abstract:
Annual (water year, October-September) runoff (mm) of the Burdekin River, Queensland, Australia was reconstructed from intensity of fluorescence measured in two coral cores from Havannah and Pandora Reefs which lie in the Burdekin River plume. The following three data sets are provided: 1) Reconstruction of annual Burdekin River runoff (mm), 1644-1980. 2) Havannah Reef standardized (with respect to long-term mean sd) fluorescence index, 1644-1986. 3) Pandora Reef standardized (with respect to long-term mean sd) fluorescence index, 1737-1980
