I have a page that calls several ajax queries. These queries populate about 30 div's. Included in these divs are links which take people to detail pages. My initial page loads with none of the data in the divs when a user goes to a detail page and then hits the browser back button. How can I resolve this?

You have to reload the AJAX queries.  The Back button and usually Refresh just load the original page.

is there a way to tell if the page is a reload or coming from the back button?

No, you need to check whatever method your are using to load the AJAX data to see if it has already been done.  If it has, then it must be a Back button and you need to load it again.
