The Salton Sea

The Sea and Desert Interpretive Association (SDIA) has put together this video about the Salton Sea. Rangers Steve Bier and Paul Reisman present the facts about this water body in Southern California, which was created by an engineering mistake in 1906. Today the Salton Sea is facing a different set of challenges and it's important for everyone to understand the truth behind this fascinating landscape.

Час відновити штампування влогів. В цьому влозі я їду на найбільше озеро в Каліфорнії яке знаходиться в пустелі біля Лос Анджелесу. Побуваю на хіппі-горі Спасіння, в закинутих містечках, на болотяних гейзерах і ще в багатьох цікавих місцях.

Swimming in Salton Sea

- Yes, you CAN swim in Salton Sea!
As we hiked from Salt Creek Beach to Bombay Beach at Salton Sea, in the 107°F temperatures, we made several stops to cool down - and what better way to cool down at Salton Sea than to swim in the water!
The bottom is very muddy (i lost my flipflop in the first 2 steps) and the water is very warm, probably about 80°F but in the high heat of the desert it's still very refreshing. The only problem is wading out far enough so the water is deep enough to actually swim.
Our tip: don't drink the water.
In the summer of 2015 we will be walking around the entire shoreline of Salton Sea. Follow along at and on Twitter @SaltonSeaWalk !

Timothy Krantz - New Initiatives for Restoring the Salton Sea

Join Professor Tim Krantz as he discusses the future of the Salton Sea. Once a popular tourist destination, it is now the subject of much concern. The Salton Sea is one of our region's most notable natural features and plays host to over 400 species of birds.

Professor Tim Krantz holds a PhD in Geography from the University of California-Berkeley, and is a professor of Environmental Studies at the University of Redlands. Dr. Krantz is a recognized authority on the Salton Sea, where he served as the Salton Sea Database Program Director for eight years, overseeing a $4.7 million federal-assistance grant to develop a regional geographic database for the area.

Saving the Salton Sea

The Salton Sea, which sits about 100 miles east of San Diego and directly on top of the San Andreas fault, is shrinking, and the contaminants that had been hidden below the water are now spreading to nearby communities as toxic dust. In its spring 2019 issue, UCR Magazine explores the many ways in which UCR is helping save California’s largest body of water — and the people who live there.


Salton Sea Restoration

For over 50 Years the Salton Sea has been neglected and this an opportunity not a problem. We need work with Federal, State and Local levels to address the issues with the Salton Sea. We need to create solutions for cleanup and conservation and create viable options like providing tax credits to companies & developers. Generating these public private partnerships is an essential step to make a positive future for the Salton Sea a reality.

Real Problems, Real Solutions : Salton Sea

Saving the Salton Sea

This documentary tell the story of the Salton Sea. The history, where it is today (2000) and what could be possible in the future. Hosted and narrated by William Devane. I was the Director of Photography. I was not the producer or the writer. I am not an advocate for any of the policies or opinions. I light them, I shoot them, I walk away. Thank you for your interest and spending the time watching my work.

Salton Beach

Created this after our surreal, little visit to the Salton Sea on Sunday.
Found these photos online and converted them all to black and white.
Then I put them all to music in a PowerPoint slideshow using “Ave Maria Guarani” from the soundtrack of “The Mission”.
