The annual velocity of Hansbreen in the period 2007–2015 is determined at stake No. 4 located approximately 3.5 km upstream of the glacier terminus (15°28`E, 77°02`N). Monitoring of the glacier is conducted by Institute of Geophysics Polish Academy of Science. The stake position was measured by the differential GPS receiver at the turn of each year (December/January) (with a horizontal accuracy of ±4 cm). Velocity along the Hansbreen terminus in 2009 and 2015 is processed from repeated terrestrial laser scanning in August 2009 and August 2015. Values of displacements of the same features along the calving front (distinctive edges of crevasses) for approximately two weeks were provided with an accuracy of around 10 cm. The database is the supplement to the paper: Małgorzata Błaszczyk, Jacek A.

Precipitation measurements were made at AWS at Polish olar Station Hornsund (N77°00' E15°33') with a multi-type gauge that measured both solid and liquid. Results were into liquid water equivalent in millimeters. Precipitation measurements are slightly offset temporally, with a day defined as beginning at 6 a.m. on the observed day and ending 6 a.m. on the day after.
The ISO19115 metadata standard is the preferred metadata standard to use. If unsure what templates to start with, use this one.
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).
