Facility information

The field station provides a wet lab, a dry lab, an office, a seminar room, housing for visiting researchers, and a SCUBA tank fill station, operated under the Diving Safety Office.

SCUBA tank fills are available to approved scientific divers and to recreational divers with proof of certification, valid identification, and a cylinder meeting appropriate industry standards. Advance notice of fill needs is necessary, as staff is often in the field or unavailable.  Donations are accepted in support of the station’s dive program.
