    The longitudinal profile of the glacier surface is derived from continuous DEM generated from WorldView-2 satellite data (Błaszczyk et al., 2019), while profile of the bed under the glacier is interpolated from ground-penetrating radar data (Grabiec et al., 2012).

    Digital elevation model (DEM) combined from DEM derived from aerial images captured in 2020 over Hornsund, Svalbard by Dornier aircraft and from terrestrial laser scanner campaign in 2021. Both DEMs contain data gaps; therefore, they were combined to create a continuous product with the best possible accuracy and resolution. The dataset is the supplement to the paper: Błaszczyk, M.; Laska, M.; Sivertsen, A.; Jawak, S.D.

    In the years 2009-2019, 49 samplings (shallow drilling or snowpits) were made on the glacier during the spring measurement campaigns in order to determine the bulk snow density and SWE. The average density of snow cover ranges from 386 to 447 kg/m3.
