California’s Salton Sea is an ecosystem facing large systemic changes in the near future. Managers and stakeholders searching for solutions to the decline of the Salton Sea have turned to the scientific community for answers. In response, scientists gathered in Irvine, California in 2014 to review existing science, propose scientific studies, and determine monitoring needs for understanding how to retain the Salton Sea as a functional ecosystem. This document summarizes the proceedings of this gathering of approximately 50 scientists at a September 2014 workshop on the state of the Salton Sea.
