    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.

    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)

    On the basis of glaciological and meteorological data collected on Werenskioldbreen, daily surface ablation for the period May - November for years 2009-2020 was calculated (PPD, temperature ablation model). 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, “Arctic climate system study of ocean, sea ice, and glaciers interactions in Svalbard area”—AWAKE2 (Pol-Nor/198675/ 17/2013), supported by the National Centre for Research and Development within the Polish–Norwegian Research Cooperation Programme and the SvalGlac—Sensitivity of Svalbard glaciers to climate change, the ESF Project, the project Integrated Arctic 355 Observing System (INTAROS)- Horizon 2020, the ice2sea 7th FP projects. The studies were carried out as part of the scientific activity of the Centre for Polar Studies (University of Silesia in Katowice) with the use of research and logistic equipment of the Polar Laboratory of the University of Silesia in Katowice.

    Air temperature measurements from AWS located on the Werenskioldbreen. The sensors are installed on a mast that is mounted in the glacier ice. During the season, the distance between the glacier's surface and the sensors increases. The instruments are serviced at least once a year between March and April.

    The dataset includes point winter and summer mass balance measurements on ablation stakes in 2009-2020 and the calculated point annual mass balance. 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, “Arctic climate system study of ocean, sea ice, and glaciers interactions in Svalbard area”—AWAKE2 (Pol-Nor/198675/ 17/2013), supported by the National Centre for Research and Development within the Polish–Norwegian Research Cooperation Programme and the SvalGlac—Sensitivity of Svalbard glaciers to climate change, the ESF Project, the project Integrated Arctic 355 Observing System (INTAROS)- Horizon 2020, the ice2sea 7th FP projects.

    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.
