A group of University of California, Riverside graduate students have created a blog devoted to the Salton Sea in order to raise awareness to the scientific and policy questions affecting the body of water. Created in conjunction with the National Science Foundation’s Interdisciplinary Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program, ‘Salton Sea Sense’ aims to promote conversations that lead to an improved understanding of the ecological, economical, and cultural value of the Salton Sea.

“The Salton Sea is truly an interdisciplinary issue,” said Drew Story, a graduate student in chemical and environmental engineering who is one of the creators of the blog. “We created an outlet that is a comprehensive source for knowledge, news and avenues for engagement regarding the sea.”

“The goal is to make information about the Salton Sea accessible and important to community members, policymakers and industry leaders,” said Holly Mayton, a graduate student in chemical and environmental engineering who also helped create the blog.
