Atqasuk GPS Base Station - Available Equipment

Equipment Available

A geodetic quality, dual-frequency base station is available at Atqasuk, for use in GPS surveys by scientists and others operating in the local area. When used with geodetic quality roving systems, centimeter-level accuracy can be realized over 100 kilometers away from the station by collecting and post-processing data.

Base station data (low-rate) are available online from the UNAVCO Archive (site ATQK). High-rate data are only archived upon request. Requests for archiving high-rate data should be made as soon as possible by emailing archive-gpsunavco.org.

The following GPS equipment is available for use at Atqasuk:
Trimble NetR8 Base Station

A geodetic GPS base station is available for use in post-processed surveys.

The following GPS equipment can be requested from UNAVCO for use at Atqasuk:
Roving Systems

UNAVCO can provide geodetic quality GPS roving receivers, such as the Trimble R7, for use in surveying and positioning tasks in the Atqasuk area. Roving equipment is not permanently assigned to the station and must be requested in advance of the field season. All ancillary equipment such as power systems, enclosures, survey controllers, and cabling is also available.

Alternatively, UNAVCO maintains a set of roving equipment at Barrow, which may be scheduled in advance for loan to users working in the Atqasuk area.
