Summary Deals with various aspects of the physical and chemical limnology of the Salton Sea, which has long served as an important habitat for fish and waterbirds. This title includes papers that represent studies undertaken with the aim of informing the re-engineering of this ecosystem so that its value to wildlife and man can be restored or enhanced.
