The mission of Salton Sea Sense is to promote thoughtful conversations that lead to an improved understanding of the ecological, economical, and cultural value of the Salton Sea. We aim to elevate the Salton Sea, and the issues surrounding it, in the minds of community members, policymakers, and industry leaders, while providing a resource for informed decision-making regarding the future of the Sea and its effects in Southern California and beyond.

Contributors include nine University of California, Riverside doctoral students who are a part of the National Science Foundation WaterSENSE IGERT program. Information on the program can be found at www.watersense.ucr.edu.
