Toolik Field Station
The Toolik Field Station (TFS), run by the Institute of Arctic Biology, University of Alaska Fairbanks, is a world-renowned Arctic climate change research station located in the northern foothills of the Brooks Range in Alaska. Toolik-based researchers have access to 87,000 acres designated as a Research Natural Area by the Bureau of Land Management. Our location allows scientists access to three major physiographic provinces of Alaska: the Brooks Range, the arctic foothills, and the arctic coastal plain. Toolik Field Station has been a major location for scientific research in the Arctic since 1975. The Environmental Data Center (EDC) at TFS works directly with scientists and administrators for the advancement of research. The EDC supports the science community by: establishing the environmental and biological context wherein scientists can interpret their own research, managing a suite of common-use laboratory and field equipment during the main field season, providing limited assistance with field work.
