Salton Sea at a Crossroads Print Exclusive
A century ago, California's Salton Sea did not exist. A massive flood formed the sea, which 40 years ago was teeming with life. Today, the Salton Sea has come to a crossroads, its future clouded by the certainty of diminishing inflows, the impact of climate change and the challenges posed by its tremendous scale.

Say hello to your PIO
If you don’t know what a PIO is, or don’t know who yours is, it might be worth your while to get to know him or her. PIOs are science writers, trained to take science jargon and make it readable. They are a scientist’s friend.
