Mass balance data for 2001- 5 for Engabreen and Storglombreen, northern Norway

Mass balance data was measured for two Svartisen glaciers between 2001 and 2005. Most of this work was financed and carried out as part of a glacier monitoring programme but the work was done in association with work for the Omega project and the results are available to participants within Omega.

The mass balance data are available for Engabreen and Storglombreen, and includes accumulation over the winter period, ablation over the sum period and net balance for each of the three years. The mass balance data are available as net for each glacier, and also in 100 m elevation intervals for the two glaciers.
