UCi14_saltonsea_2lp_blue
UCI is a land grant institution with internationally recognized expertise in many sustainability -related domains. UCI seeks to harness its research, teaching, and service resources to address sustainability challenges facing the Salton Sea region. To this end, the Provost has created the Salton Sea Initiative. We view addressing the challenges at Salton Sea as multi-faceted, long term, and critical to Southern California’s future. We also believe that, as desertification and salinity crises expand globally, the solutions pioneered at the Sea could inform actions of similarly situated communities across the globe.
