As part of the MAGICS project (Mass balance of Arctic Glaciers and Ice sheets in relation to the Climate and Sea level changes) a compilation of existing in situ mass-balance observations on Arctic glaciers was made. These data can be found on this site. The data was updated up to 2003. All data can also be found on the website of the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS)
