Toolik Lake Area

The Toolik Lake vegetation area is located near the western boundary of the Upper Kuparuk River region and encloses a 20-km2 area surrounding Toolik Lake that stretches from the Dalton Highway on the east to Jade Mountain on the west. It includes the Toolik Field Station, the old Toolik Lake pipeline construction camp gravel pad and airstrip on the northeast side of the lake and the primary terrestrial research areas on the south, west and east sides of the lake, as well as several smaller research lakes in the immediate vicinity of Toolik Lake. The area contains surfaces with irregular topography that were glaciated during the Late Pleistocene.

Visit Toolik Arctic Geobotanical Atlas for details on legend units, photos of map units and plant species, glossary, bibliography and links to ground data.
