Cape Tribulation Tropical Research Station Gallery

Station dry room

This small, insulated room takes advantage of the excess heat generated by the station's solar power system and circulates it with a small electric fan to keep the ambient temperature at 30+ degrees (Celsius) with a relative humidity significantly lower than outside (about 60%). It is the main storage room for clothing, bedding, towels, books, and anything else that needs to be kept dry as well as an emergency dryer for anything that gets wet.
