Summary
Abstract: [from the online data set description]

Coral Sr/Ca, U/Ca and delta-18O records were replicated from eight
massive Porites colonies, spanning 120 to 420 years of continuous
growth. The cores were collected at seven reefs, 12 to 120 km apart,
from the central Great Barrier Reef, Australia and drilled between
1984 and 1988. The use of multiple cores allowed us to test the
fidelity of individual ... View entire text
