Abstract. The Programme for Monitoring of the Greenland Ice Sheet (PROMICE) has been measuring climate and ice sheet
properties since 2007. Currently the PROMICE automatic weather station network includes 25 instrumented sites in Greenland.
Accurate measurements of the surface and near-surface atmospheric conditions in a changing climate is important for reliable
present and future assessment of changes to the Greenland ice sheet. Here we present the PROMICE vision, methodology,
and each link in the production chain for obtaining and sharing quality-checked data. In this paper we mainly focus on the
critical components for calculating the surface energy balance and surface mass balance. A user-contributable dynamic webbased
database of known data quality issues is associated with the data products at (https://github.com/GEUS-PROMICE/
PROMICE-AWS-data-issues/). As part of the living data option, the datasets presented and described here are available at

Short summary
The Programme for Monitoring of the Greenland Ice Sheet (PROMICE) has been measuring climate and ice sheet properties since 2007. Here, we present our data product from weather and ice sheet measurements from a network of automatic weather stations mainly located in the melt area of the ice sheet. Currently the PROMICE automatic weather station network includes 25 instrumented sites in Greenland.
