CLEAR collects relevant scientific and engineering expertise to enable objective multi-disciplinary research to examine anthropogenic processes in the context of environmental and human health. CLEAR develops validated technologies to rapidly detect and remediate instances of environmental contamination.
CLEAR is the leading authoritative environmental research testing center dedicated to non-biased fact reporting and education about environmental quality in relation to industrial processes. Specific areas of expertise include the testing and monitoring of groundwater and surface water quality in proximity to unconventional oil and gas extraction (e.g., hydraulic fracturing) sites.
CLEAR affiliates are developing technologies to enable detection and remediation of harmful contaminants that pose a danger to human health, as well as cultivate best management practices to further advance the responsible management of natural resources. Collaboration, as well as data collection, analysis, and sharing are key aspects of a CLEAR affiliation.
