Short summary
This contribution presents flagged (valid/non-valid) data from a current-meter and a multi-parametric probe operating between 2008 and 2014 at the lower Guadiana Estuary. To support data analysis, freshwater discharge into the estuary is also provided for the monitoring period. The data set is publicly available at PANGAEA in tab-delimitated format (
