Time-Lapse Image Library

Toolik Field Station began taking time-lapse photographs in February 2007 to document spatial and temporal patterns of snow accumulation and melt. Daily images are captured close to noon Alaska Standard Time. Four time-lapse cameras are mounted in the vicinity of TFS and two webcams are located in TFS buildings. In addition, on this page we host photos from AON's Imnavait Creek study site.
