Toolik Lake Field Station

The mission of Toolik Field Station is to support research and education that creates a greater understanding of the Arctic and its relationship to the global environment.

TFS provides housing, meals, and laboratories in addition to support services for arctic research and education to scientists and students from universities, institutions, and agencies from throughout the US and the world. Research support includes GIS and mapping services, technical and IT assistance, shared commonly used equipment, and collection of standardized environmental data.

A user-day fee contributes to costs of operations, and a Steering Committee and science user input advises TFS management on the direction and extent of science support and station operations.
