    Dataset contains detailed measurements of physical features of seasonal snow cover, according to International Classification of Seasonal Snow on the Ground (Fierz et al. 2009). Fieldwork has been done during peak of accumulation on several glaciers in the region of Hornsund, Svalbard: Amundsenisen (2013) Hansbreen (three sites; 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018) Werenskioldbreen (two sites; 2013, 2015) Nannbreen (2013) Ariebreen (2014) Acknowledgements: Research Council of Norway, Arctic Field Grant 2013: Spatial distribution of snow cover and drainage systems on the glaciers on Wedel Jarlsberg Land (RiS ID: 6158); the National Science Centre PRELUDIUM 4: Role of meltwater from snow cover for supplying drainage systems of the Spitsbergen glaciers (2012/07/N/ST10/03784) References: Laska M., Luks B., Budzik T., 2016.
