The data set has been measured with Sontek M9 or S5 sensors, depending on the time step (Table 1).

Table 1. The measurement times, their acronyms (applied in the above mentioned publication)
and applied sensors. In the acronyms of the measurement times W=winter low flow period, S=spring
(snow-melt flood period), A=autumn low flow period. These information are presented also
in the Table 1 of the above-mentioned publication.

RiverSurveyor Live software, and its most recent version, was used each time.
The measurements have been done at Pulmanki River (69°55'59.09" N;  28° 2'34.32" E), Northern Finland, during 2016 - 2020. 
The data is in directories of corresponding measurement times. The measurement
locations cs1, cs2, cs3, cs4, csA, csB and csC can be found in the paper (Figs. 1 and 2). 
The data is in raw Matlab file format, as exported from the RiverSurveyor Live software.
The coordinate system is ENU.

When used, the referencing to the paper and DOI ( 10.5281/zenodo.3855035 ) are required.
