Toolik science support staff can assist with general off season field support needs. Off season support can easily result in ever expanding tasks, so allowable support is generally limited to tasks that may take one or two staff up to a day to complete, once per month. This may include charging batteries, downloading data, snow removal around sensors/PV panels, freighting supplies, checking ice or snow depth, and other tasks. Larger tasks may be allowed as well, pending approval of that task by the Toolik Management Team. Off season support is designed to help keep your autonomous and remote sites running properly year round, however, we can't take the place of your research team if frequent sampling, inspection, or adjustments are needed.
