Abstract. The present atlas is a systemic collection of forty glaciological maps compiled in standard cartographic projections, typically UTM or polar stereographic, at multiple divisible scales; these are typically maps of the Eurasian High Arctic as well as several circum-arctic maps, which are thematically connected with each other and entirely cover all glacial areas in the Russian Insular Arctic. The main goal of the atlas is to represent the regime, mass balance and fluctuations of land- and sea ice resources in the Eurasian Arctic Sector as well as to determine and to interpret main forcing agents acting on the ice distribution in the High Arctic. The maps included in the Atlas depict glacier elevation, volume, density and mass changes in the Eurasian High Arctic for the period of 1950-2010s and other relevant glaciological processes, such as glacier calving (iceberg production), sea ice drift and glacial isostatic adjustment derived from satellite ERS and/or TanDEM-X interferometry and ICESat / CryoSat altimetry data in comparison with 60-year old reference elevation models. New map prototypes showing spatial distribution of mass balance characteristics in the heterogeneous field of gravity were generated and interpreted using long-term precipitation records and GOCE gradiometry data. The glacier change maps are combined into several groups depending on glacier dimensions: maps of separate ice caps, maps of large glacier complexes and observational maps of glacier changes in separate archipelagos (meso-regions) and in the entire macro-region. Together they constitute several map/scale series joined in the all-in-one form of an Online Atlas. Atlases have traditionally been bound into book form, while our maps in the atlas are in web-version multimedia formats *.html, *.mpg and *.pdf. The Atlas, its description and the maps constituting the Atlas are available free of charge and can be readily accessed online at our project webpage http://dib.joanneum.at/MAIRES/.
