Burdekin River Annual Runoff Reconstruction from NOAA/NCDC Paleoclimatology Program

[ Get Data ]

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 and sd)
fluorescence index, 1644-1986

3) Pandora Reef standardized (with respect to long-term mean and sd)
fluorescence index, 1737-1980
