What we have: Toolik Field Station has a variety of general use equipment available. These items are owned and maintained by the Environmental Data Center Staff and can be used free of charge. We continue to expand the laboratory facilities at the station to provide the best possible equipment. Staff will be on hand to provide training and help with maintenance. We make every effort to keep the equipment in top running condition, however we ask for your patience if problems arise as parts and repairs take additional time due to the remote location of the station. Please see below for the current list of equipment.

Scheduling: Use the Support Request System through your myToolik account to submit a schedule request. Equipment is available on a first come, first served basis and must be scheduled in advance. We will try to accommodate all user requests and needs.

If you have recommendations for additional equipment or changes to existing equipment, please submit a Feedback Form on the Contact Us page. We appreciate your comments.
