The Paleoecological Environmental Assessment and Research Lab (PEARL) is a group of about 30 research scientists, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, and other scientists dedicated to using paleolimnological and other techniques to provide historical perspectives to environmental change.

A large portion of PEARL's financial
