    • Data set of daily suspended sediment transport from the Breelva (glacier river), which drains the Werenskioldbreen (Southwestern Spitsbergen), for the period 2007–2012 (Appendix I). • Period of sampling, range of the suspended sediment concentration (SSC), total suspended sediment load (SSL), and the rate of mechanical denudation and also total annual runoff (Qtotal) from Werenskioldbreen catchment for the studied seasons (1972, 1986 and 2007–2012) (Appendix II). Detailed information can be found in: Pulina, M. Preliminary studies on denudation in SW Spitsbergen. Bull. Acad. Pol. Sci. Terre 1974, 22, 83–99. Krawczyk, W., Opołka-Gądek, J.

    Glacier velocities are derived from the displacements of stakes installed close to the front of Hansbreen. Measurements of stakes position were conducted in 2008-2009, 2010-2011, 2013-2014 and 2015, with precise dGPS receiver (Leica 1230, accuracy ±5cm) and with time intervals from 3 hours to a few days.

    DEMs from WorldView-2 and Pléaides were extracted using the Rational Function Model (RFM). To improve images orientation, one ground control points (GCPs) was used for each stereo pair. Data format: grid (2m), UTM 33X / EGM 2008. DEMs were developed in OrthoEngine module of PCI Geomatica 2016 with the low level of detail and mountainous type of relief.

    The position of the terminus of Hansbreen is derived with very high frequency in the period 1991–2015. Over 160 multispectral and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data were used: LANDSAT 5, LANDSAT 7, LANDSAT 8, Terra ASTER, Alos AVNIR, SPOT 5, ERS-1, ERS-2, ENVISAT, Alos PALSAR, TerraSAR-X, TanDEM-X, and Sentinel-1. Terra ASTER images were orthorectified with use of 2008 DEM SPOT and geocoded in PCI Geomatica and ArcGIS software. Multispectral, already terrain-corrected images were rectified in ArcGIS software. SAR data were provided at the Single Look Complex level and that both radiometric and geometric corrections were applied using the same methods, and with the same digital elevation model (2008 DEM SPOT). The SAR data were processed in BEAM (http://www.brockmann-consult.de/cms/web/beam). Sentinel data downloaded from the Sentinel’s Data Hub were already processed. The satellite data were digitized manually to obtain the front position. The database is the supplement to the paper: Małgorzata Błaszczyk, Jacek A.

    The monitoring of the mass balance of the Werenskioldbreen (Wedel Jarlsberg Land, Spitsbergen, Svalbard) in the years 1999-2002 and 2009-2018. It is calculated on the base of 4 to 9 ablation stakes (depend on year). The mass balance is determined by conducting field surveys on floating calendar dates (floating-date system). Data have also been submitted to the World Glacier Monitoring Sevice (WGMS, https://wgms.ch)

Date of SAR images acquisitions: 12, 16 Mar 2018 (Fine Quad Pol RADARSAT-2), 17 Mar 2018 (High Sensitive Quad Pol ALOS-2 PALSAR). Method of classification: H-a Wishart Classification. Results validated with terrestrial measurements (shallow ice cores drilling, Ground Penetrating Radar measurements). Research done with cooperation with University of Iceland and supported by the European Space Agency, Third Party Miassions. Overwiew of results of RADATSAT-2 (16 Mar 2018; Fine Quad Pol) classification of south part of Langjökull. Black line - contour of Langjökull; other colours - different scattering properties of SAR microwaves. For more details please contact Barbara Barzycka (bbarzycka@us.edu.pl).
