The paper presents calculations of the ice mass losses caused by calving of the Hans Glacier. Ablation by calving takes about 20 percent of total annual mass losses of the Hans Glacier. Observations of glaciers retreat in the Hornsund region point out that fast recession takes place in part of glacier where flow velocity is high. The author discusses also question of the ice cored moraines developed as result of glaciers snout retreat from sea to land.
