Research and Logistics Support Organizations
There are several organizations in the ABoVE study domain that may provide fee-for-service logistical support (e.g., permitting, site access, accommodations, field equipment, vehicles, etc.) for researchers. Below is a list of some of these organizations, with links to their websites for more information. Inclusion here does not signify preferential endorsement, nor guarantee space/support at these centers. If you have questions about these organizations, or suggestions for additions to the list, please contact Peter Griffith.
The person identified as the point of contact for each organization below is prepared to discuss logistics with ABoVE investigators. Researchers contacting these persons should take care to be considerate of their time andrespectful of any constraints and/or limitations on their ability to help.
