Climatic mass balance, snow conditions and runoff in Svalbard (1957-2018)

The dataset contains model output presented in the manuscript 'A long-term dataset of climatic mass balance, snow conditions and runoff in Svalbard (1957-2018)', which is considered for publication in The Cryosphere. The data are structured in 3-D arrays containing spatially distributed and annual mean values of the variables specified below. The spatial resolution is 1x1-km. Variables included in the dataset:


  • Climatic mass balance
  • Air temperature
  • Precipitation
  • Runoff
  • Refreezing
  • Pore space (down to 14 m)
  • Subsurface temperature (at 14 m depth)
  • Snow disappearance date
  • Snow onset date
