The Salton Sea is a nexus of extraordinary social, political, and elemental forces. The diversity of competing interests in this singular Southern California ecosystem makes common understanding of the relationships among the natural environment, cultural context, and social values a paramount concern. Salton Sea Atlas is a comprehensive collection of maps that present an authoritative but accessible look at this unique inland sea - its physical geography, geological and cultural history, and fragile ecology. Researchers, scientists, and policy makers will use this information resource to make better-informed decisions about the fate of the sea and its natural environment.
The Redlands Institute at the University of Redlands promotes collaborative, interdisciplinary research by providing a common organizational structure and associated technical facilities that support the development of partnerships, cross-cutting research themes, and educational outreach in the service of society's greater good.
