    Results of supervised classification of six Landsat 8 images acquired on: 25 May, 3 June, 22 June, 15 July, 4 August and 20 August 2014, covering glaciers in Hornsund fiord. Method of classification: Maximum Likelihood. The results show variability of snow cover areas in melting period of 2014 for glaciers located in Hornsund fiord and larger than 9 km2 (Körberbreen, Samarinbreen, Chomjakovbreen, Mendelejevbreen, Svalisbreen, Hornbreen, Storbreen, Kvalfangarbreen, Mühlbacherbreen, Paierlbreen and Hansbreen). For more information, please check: https://doi.org/10.3390/w9100804 Overview: Results of Maximum Likelihood classification of Landsat 8 images for analysed glaciers. Red - snow cover, yellow - glacier ice, black - debirs, grey - cloud cover.

    Ice condition directly at the Hansbreen front is obtained from visual interpretation of oblique pictures taken at 3 h intervals by Canon EOS 1000D time-lapse photography (Figure 1) for the period 2010–2015 (http://ppdb.us.edu.pl/geonetwork/srv/pol/catalog.search;jsessionid=muhaqbum8pz21xknjo0crhodn?node=srv#/metadata/cf6a17fd-ec3a-4ff6-8232-67a0dc5957d4) The database is the supplement to the paper: Małgorzata Błaszczyk, Jacek A.

    Englacial water pressure was recorded by placing HOBO 250-Foot Depth Water Level Data Loggers in the center of Crystal Cave (N77°02' E15°34', 174 m) channel system (Hansbreen glacier). Data loggers were set to record values every 30 minutes, resampled to daily in post-processing, and have a resolution of 2.55 kPa for a typical error of 3.8 cm water level. Water pressure was converted in water level. Sensor was placed in the cave by drilling anchor points into the ice above a vertical shaft, then hanging cables down in the center of conduit. Stabilization cables were used to keep sensors from attaching to and freezing into ice walls by manually rappelling down to the sensor and attaching it to three horizontal cables, anchored into the ice walls at about 120 degrees apart. Senor was installed in Crystal Cave at about 100 m total distance from the cave entrance, in ice about 74 m thick. The sensor was installed 28 m above the glacier bed and 46 m below the ice surface.

    Precipitation measurements were made at AWS at Polish olar Station Hornsund (N77°00' E15°33') with a multi-type gauge that measured both solid and liquid. Results were into liquid water equivalent in millimeters. Precipitation measurements are slightly offset temporally, with a day defined as beginning at 6 a.m. on the observed day and ending 6 a.m. on the day after.

    Hansbreen velocity is measured with a Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) receiver that sampled location every 3 hours at stake 4MONIT located approximately 3.5 km upstream of the glacier terminus (N77°02’ E15°28’). Monitoring of the glacier is conducted by Institute of Geophysics Polish Academy of Science. We calculate the daily speed based on each midnight positions (with a horizontal accuracy of ±4 cm).

    The orthophotomap was prepared on the basis of infrared aerial photographs taken by EUROSENSE in September 1998. The study covers the Dolina Kiezmarskej Bieley vody valley located in the High Tatra Mountains (Slovakia). Cartographic projection: Universal Transverse Mercator, Ellipsoid: WGS 84, Coordinates system: UTM zone 34. The project was financed by No.3P04E 045 23. Editors: Bogdan Gądek, Milan Koren (sen.), Milan Koren (jun.) The project was financed by the Polish Commitee on Scientific Research under term of research grant No. 3P04E 045 23.

    Ice front position of the tidewater glaciers in Hornsund was examined during the following periods: 1899–1936–1960/1961–1976–1990–2001–2005–2010. For the period 1899–1990, several archival maps of varying accuracy were used, sometimes difficult to assess. For the period 1976–2010 multispectral and radar satellite images were used. Detailed description of the source data and accuracy can be found in: Błaszczyk M., Jania J.A., Kolondra L., 2013: Fluctuations of tidewater glaciers in Hornsund Fiord (Southern Svalbard) since the beginning of the 20th century. Polish Polar Research, 34(4): 327-352.

    Digital elevation model (DEM) with high spatial resolution derived from aerial images captured in 2020 over Hornsund, Svalbard by Dornier aircraft. The spatial resolution of the orthomosaic is 0.174 m. Aerial images for the area were provided by the SIOS through a dedicated call of proposals (https://sios-svalbard.org/AirborneRS). The dataset is the supplement to the paper: Błaszczyk, M.; Laska, M.; Sivertsen, A.; Jawak, S.D.

    The longitudinal profile of the glacier surface is derived from continuous DEM generated from WorldView-2 satellite data (Błaszczyk et al., 2019), while profile of the bed under the glacier is interpolated from ground-penetrating radar data (Grabiec et al., 2012).

    Upwelling longwave flux in air measurements from AWS located on the Werenskioldbreen. The sensors are installed on a mast that is mounted in the glacier ice. During the season, the distance between the glacier's surface and the sensors increases. The station is serviced at least once a year between March and April.
