MSU’s Dr. Kelton Clark Named to State Environmental Task Force

Morgan State University Estuarine Research Center Director Kelton Clark was recently named to a governor-appointed environmental task force of business leaders and environmental scientists charged with studying sustainable growth and wastewater management. The task force is charged with reporting on the use of sewage disposal systems in Maryland’s expanding residential development, and its impact on area ecosystems and waterways.

Dr. Clark is a marine and estuarine ecologist with interest in experimental and statistical design used to test fundamental questions and advance theoretical foundations of populations and community ecology.

The Estuarine Research Center is located near the Patuxent River (part of Chesapeake Bay watershed) in Saint Leonard, Maryland. Research conducted at the state-of-the art facility is designed to increase the understanding of coastal ecosystems so that they may be properly managed and protected. Much of the work is focused on the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, such as the Patuxent River.
