Dr. Kelton ClarkHi.  My name is Kelly Clark.  I am the Director of PEARL, the Patuxent Environmental and Aquatic Research Laboratory. PEARL conducts innovative research primarily in the realm of the impact of human activities on coastal ecosystems by applying interdisciplinary approaches to studying complex scientific systems, while providing students with the academic programs necessary to meet the environmental challenges of the 21st Century and beyond.   PEARL uses the results of this research to work directly with regional and national decision makers and resource managers to take sound actions on issues related to our coastal and estuarine natural resources. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email me.  If I cannot answer your questions, I will make sure I immediately find another person who can help you.  I hope to hear from you.
