Proglacial river discharge was monitored using stage measurements (collected by a HOBO pressure sensor) and dye dilution gauging at a stable bedrock section near the terminus of Leverett Glacier, 67.09N -50.23E. Here we report hourly means of measurements made at 1 minute intervals. The same method has been used at this site over several melt seasons and is described in detail by Bartholomew et al. (2011, and Tedstone et al. (2013,
