A glimpse of station life with VCR LTER
We envision VCR LTER and the Coastal Research Center as a thriving research community where both our scientists’ identities and their research projects are fully supported.
Welcome to the Anheuser-Busch Coastal Research Center (ABCRC) of the University of Virginia!
The field station provides laboratory and dormitory facilities, logistics and technical support to visiting ABCRC researchers from various institutions and agencies. Field station personnel maintain the site, conduct collaborative research with other researchers, collect data from meteorological stations, tide gauges, well transects and water level recorders. The staff are here to support your research, logistics to and from research sites, integration of GPS surveys (both kinematic and static), assisting in laboratory facilities and availability and housing/dormitory requirements.
Consult the menus (above) for additional information and resources. You can also view an interactive map showing ABCRC sites and facilities.
