Research station

Kuroshima Research Station in Kuroshima, Okinawa.

A research station is a station that is built for the purpose of conducting scientific research. Research station sites might include outer space (such as the International Space Station) and oceans. Many nations have research stations located in Antarctica; Showa Station, Halley and Troll are examples. There are also various research stations located in remote areas of the world for field ecological research like the: Tiputini Biodiversity Station (located in the Ecuadorian Amazon), Comoé National Park Research Station (located in the Savannas of North-eastern Côte d'Ivoire) or the Gombe Research Station (located in Tanzania) in which famous chimpanzee research was conducted by Jane Goodall.
