    Dataset contains snowpack density derived from shallow snow cores. Fieldwork has been done during peak of accumulation on several glaciers in the region of Hornsund, Svalbard: Amundsenisen (2013) Werenskioldbreen (2013, 2015) Nannbreen (2013) Flatbreen (2013, 2018) Storbreen (2013, 2018) Results might be valuable i.a. for mass-balance estimations or GPR survey validation.

    Dataset contains evolution of the snow temperature within seasonal snowpack on Hansbreen. Fieldwork has been performed with several thermistors located at different levels (from snow surface to the bottom, on glacier ice) from April to July 2010 (during period of early and intensive surface melting). Study has been repeated in 2015, at the same location.

    Dataset contains surface elevation along spring GPR profiles performed on Hansbreen and Werenskioldbreen. Fieldwork has been done with dGPS device in kinematic mode at the end of ablation season in 2013 and 2015 to compare it with spring GPR survey and calculate surface ablation.
