Short summary
During the last centuries hundreds of glaciers in Greenland have been mapped and named. Here we present the official database of all Greenlandic glacier names - consisting of 733 glacier names that have been approved by the Greenlandic authorities. This data set will help researchers working with Greenlandic glaciers in naming the glaciers properly in order to avoid future misunderstandings and will help the researcher who is looking for older glacier names found in the historic literature.
