Description In the study, we focus on a description of relationship between meteorological factors and hydrograph during two ablation seasons in three catchments (Elsa, Ferdinand, Bertil Streams) in Billefjorden, Svalbard. These have similar geology, geomorphology and climate; however, they differ in an extent of glaciers. Meteorological variables are represented by air and ground temperatures, global radiation, precipitation, wind speed and direction, all measured by automatic weather stations with one-hour interval. Discharges were obtained in stable gorges near the outlet into the sea by applying discharge – water stage rating curve using continuous hydrostatic pressure sensors and handheld Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter.
