1. Two high-quality UAV movies taken in Hornsund fiord on 15th Sep 2016 with Phantom 3 Advanced usage. The movies are focused on Horyzont II ship during unloading goods to the Polish Polar Station Hornsund. Format file: .MOV. 2. Dataset consist six UAV movies taken in neighborhood of stake no. 4 of Hansbreen, one taken in the vicinty of stake no. 6 of Hansbreen and two on Tuvbreen. The movies from stake no. 4 show the ablation zone, crevasses, glaciers in the area and a team of University of Silesia scientists during maintanance of automatic weather station (AWS). The movie from stake no. 6 presents the surface of Hansbreen towards accumulation zone. The movies from Tuvbreen show the area around, surface of the glacier and University of Silesia team. UAV: Phantom 3 Advanced. Format file: .MOV. 3. One high-quality UAV movie taken from West morain of Paierbreen 22nd Aug 2016 with Phantom 3 Advanced usage. The movie is focused on the front of Paierlbreen. Format file: .MOV. 4. Two high-quality UAV movies taken on Silesiabreen 23nd Aug 2016 with Phantom 3 Advanced usage. The movie is focused on the snowline of Silesiabreen, University of Silesia scietists while fieldwork and neighbourhood. 5. UAV movie of Storbreen upper ablation area in 21st Aug 2016. 6. Three high-quality UAV movies taken from vicinity of Treskelen in Hornsund on 12 Sep 2016 with Phantom 3 Advanced usage. The movies are focused on the University of Silesia team during automatic weather station maintanance, sailing boat operated by scientists and Hornsund fiord. 7. A high-quality UAV movie taken from vicinity of Brateggbreen on 5 Sep 2016 with Phantom 3 Advanced usage. The movie is focused on Brateggbreen front and its proglacial lake. Format file: .MOV. 8.

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.
Upwelling shortwave 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.

The ortophotomap of Hornsund Fiord with changes to the front positions of tidewater glaciers. The front positions are based on different cartographical maps and satellite data. The base map is Sentinel 2 satellite image acquired on 6 July 2018. Citation: Kolondra L., 2018. Hornsund Fiord - Changes to the front positions of tidewater glaciers.

High-resolution orthomosaic derived from aerial images captured in 2020 over Hornsund, Svalbard by Dornier aircraft. The spatial resolution of the orthomosaic is 0.0843 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. Combined Use of Aerial Photogrammetry and Terrestrial Laser Scanning for Detecting Geomorphological Changes in Hornsund, Svalbard. Remote Sens. 2022, 14, 601. https://doi.org/10.3390/rs14030601
Glacier velocities are derived from the displacements of four stakes (Z, R, T, U) installed close to the front of three glaciers in Hornsund. Measurements of stakes position were conducted in 2013-2015, with precise dGPS receiver (Leica 1230, accuracy ±5cm) and single-frequency GPS receiver (Garmin, accuracy ±5m). Detailed description of the source data and accuracy can be found in: Błaszczyk M., Ignatiuk D., Uszczyk A., Cielecka-Nowak K., Grabiec M., Jania J., Moskalik M., Walczowski W., 2019. Freshwater input to the Arctic fjord Hornsund (Svalbard). Polar Research, 38. https://doi.org/10.33265/polar.v38.3506
Radar satellite (SAR) images for Hornsund: ERS-1, ERS-2, ENVISAT, ALOS Palsar, TerraSAR-X, TandemX-1, acquired between 1992 and 2014. 210 archival SAR data were provided at the SLC level, so that both radiometric and geometric corrections were applied using the same methods, and with the same digital elevation model (2008 DEM SPOT developed by the IPY-SPIRIT Project; Korona et al., 2009). The SAR data were processed in BEAM (http://www.brockmann-consult.de/cms/web/beam).
1. One UAV movie taken of Paierlbreen in spring 2017 with Phantom 3 Advanced usage. The movie is focused on the front of the glacier and the area around.
Air temperature is provided by AWS 4 (N77°02' E15°38', 183 m). Air temperature comes from a Campbell Scientific 107 sensor at +/- 0.1° C resolution and sampled every 10 minutes, averaged to daily resolution in post-processing.
