This dataset consists of (1) broadband albedo calculated using a narrowband-to-broadband approximation and (2) surface type classification into snow, clean ice, light algae, heavy algae, cryoconite and water, as determined by a supervised classification algorithm, as applied to Sentinel-2 overpasses of S6, K-transect, south-west Greenland on 20 and 21 July 2017. Funding was provided by the NERC standard grant NE/M021025/1.
