COMMITTEE MEMBERS

David Bradley earned his Ph.D. from the Catholic University in 1970. His research interests include acoustics, marine geology, and geophysics. Dr. Bradley currently serves as a senior scientist and associate director, acoustics, at the Applied Physics Laboratory of Pennsylvania State University, and was a member of the Ocean Studies Board from 1996–1999.

Tony Clark received his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina in 1974. His research interests include underwater acoustics, oceanography, and geophysics. Dr. Clark has been a professor in the Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences Department at North Carolina State University since 1996.

Robert Holman received his Ph.D. from Dalhousie University in 1979. His research interests include nearshore morphodynamics and nearshore physical oceanography. Dr. Holman has been a professor in the College of Oceanography at Oregon State University since 1993.

Mary Jane Perry received her Ph.D. from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego in 1974. Dr. Perry is a professor at the Darling Marine Center at the University of Maine. Her research interests include a variety of direct and inverse methods to determine phytoplankton abundance using optical and remote-sensing techniques.

NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL STAFF

Alexandra Isern (Study Director, from August 1999) joined the NRC Ocean Studies Board staff as a Program Officer on June 1,1999. She received her Ph.D. in Marine Geology from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in 1993. Dr. Isern was a lecturer in Oceanography and Geology at the University of Sydney, Australia from 1994 to 1999. During this time she was the Chair of the Ocean Drilling Program Australian Scientific Committee. Dr. Isern is the co-chief scientist for an Ocean Drilling Program cruise that will investigate the magnitudes of ancient sea level change (ODP Leg 194).

Oceanography and Mine Warfare Dan Walker (Symposium Manager and Study Director, until July 1999) received his Ph.D. in geology from the University of Tennessee in 1990. He is currently a Senior Program Officer with the Ocean Studies Board of the National Research Council. Since joining the Ocean Studies Board in 1995, he has directed a number of studies including Science for Decision making: Coastal and Marine Geology at the U.S. Geological Survey (1999), Global Ocean Sciences: Toward an Integrated Approach (1998), and The Global Ocean Observing System: Users, Benefits, and Priorities (1997). A former member of the both the Kentucky and North Carolina state geologic surveys, Dr. Walker's interests focus on the value of environmental information for policymaking at local, state, and national levels. Shari Maguire (Research Assistant, from May 1999) received her B.A. from Miami University in 1994. She currently serves as a research assistant with the Ocean Studies Board. Ms. Maguire is studying biological sciences at the University of Maryland in preparation for medical school. Jennifer Wright (Senior Project Assistant, until April 1999) studied fine arts for a number of years at several institutions, most notably the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC. A native Washingtonian, Ms. Wright resides in Riverdale, Maryland. She is now at the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute, where she is the assistant to the Vice President for Administration and Finance.
