On Svalbard, the long-lasting snow cover and the timing of the snowmelt is a crucial factor in the yearly cycle of all land ecosystems. To monitor the timing and patterns of snow melt, automatic camera systems have been set up at three locations overlooking key research areas near Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard. All images are provided in daily resolution, and the date coded in the filename as yyyy-MM-dd. This work was funded by SMACS (project no. 236768 / E10; Svalbard Science Forum, Research Council of Norway). ** For all details see the full metadata description at "https://doi.pangaea.de/10.1594/PANGAEA.846617"!
