This chapter focuses on the Toolik climate's past, present, and future together with its surroundings within the Kuparuk River Basin. It provides an in-depth analysis of snowfall and snow cover of the KRB by examining the snow-climate interaction in the region. It considers the overall climate pattern of the region during the period 1989–2010, and provides descriptions of measurements and climatology such as solar radiation and thermal regime, precipitation, season length, and wind speed and direction. It also briefly discusses the many unsystematic biased measurement problems that researchers encounter such as unrepresentative gauge siting and other mechanical problems.

Keywords:   Toolik, Kuparuk River Basin, snowfall, snow cover, snow-climate interaction, climatology, solar radiation, thermal regime, precipitation
