Comment:
Refer to reference publication for detailed description of methods. Compared to version 1.0 of the dataset, this dataset used a total of 36 in situ discharge observations collected between 2008 and 2012 to construct the rating curve. The discharge estimates have an average uncertainty of 22.7%. This dataset was presented in Tedesco et al. (2014). Funding for this data set was provided by NASA Cryospheric Sciences Program grant NNG05GN89G.

In other words, times listed as 10:00 is actually 9:00. Subtract one hour from the time variable to get time in UTC+0hr.

An offset to secondary sensor data was added to match preceding measurements. This offset was determined during a short period of overlap between primary and secondary sensor.
