Datasets from the Resolving subglacial properties, hydrological networks and dynamic evolution of ice flow on the Greenland Ice Sheet (RESPONDER) project as published in the paper by Chudley et al. entitled "Controls on water storage and drainage in crevasses on the Greenland Ice Sheet".

This dataset consists of remotely sensed observations of water-filled crevasses across a marine-terminating sector of the west Greenland Ice Sheet between 2017 and 2019.The dataset presented here includes all data necessary to replicate the findings presented in the main paper, including UAV photogrammetry-derived raster data (producing a series of orthophotos and digital elevation models) and observations from satellite-derived data (Sentinel-2, ArcticDEM, and MEaSUREs Greenland velocity data) of crevasse presence, water presence, and estimates of surface stress.

This research was funded by the European Research Council as part of the RESPONDER project under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program (Grant 683043). Tom Chudley was supported by a Natural Environment Research Council Doctoral Training Partnership Studentship (Grant NE/L002507/1).
