    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)

    The database contains irregular meteorological data collected from the Hans Glacier (Hansbreen) in the years 2007-2017 as part of the polar expeditions of the University of Silesia in Spitsbergen / Svalbard. Data from three automatic weather stations. Measured elements: air temperature, air humidity, wind direction, wind speed, elements of radiation balance, others.

    Sensor HOBO U20-001-03 Water Level, Onset Computer Corporation measuring water (1) and air (2) pressure at the hydrometric station of the Werenskioldbreen (77B004'23.9"N 15B010'05.4"E) / 10-min intervals in 2019 and 2020. The dataset includes part of the results from the project “Hindcasting and projections of hydro-climatic conditions of Southern 350 Spitsbergen” (grant no. 2017/27/B/ST10/01269) financed by the Polish National Science Centre.

    A snowpit analysis template developed during Hansbreen Snowpit Database preparation. Relying on the enclosed files will enable the efficient use of the Interactive Snow Profile Visualizer niViz software (https://niviz.org) and achieve interoperable final products. ZIP catalogue contains the following filenames extensions: A) PDF – used to print table template on a waterproof paper (A4 or A5 format) and provide collecting the complete range of data during fieldwork; B) XLS – used for data archiving. Contained formulas automatically calculate the thickness and water equivalent of subsequent snow layers. All information regarding the snow data harmonization on Hansbreen is available in the journal article: Laska M., Luks B., Kępski D., Gądek B., Głowacki P., Puczko D., Migała K., Nawrot A., Pętlicki M. Hansbreen Snowpit Dataset – over 30-year of detailed snow research on the Arctic glacier.
