Front positions of tidewater glaciers in Hornsund (S Svalbard)

Ice front position of the tidewater glaciers in Hornsund was examined during the following periods: 1899–1936–1960/1961–1976–1990–2001–2005–2010. For the period 1899–1990, several archival maps of varying accuracy were used, sometimes difficult to assess. For the period 1976–2010 multispectral and radar satellite images were used. Detailed description of the source data and accuracy can be found in: Błaszczyk M., Jania J.A., Kolondra L., 2013: Fluctuations of tidewater glaciers in Hornsund Fiord (Southern Svalbard) since the beginning of the 20th century. Polish Polar Research, 34(4): 327-352.
