International forum to focus on scientific aspects and social and economic impact of salinity
Date:6/3/2014

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Salinity is a measure of the concentration of dissolved salts in water. Salt-affected lands have an adverse impact on crop production, while salts released from animal wastes degrade surface- and ground-water resources.

Salinity, therefore, has far-reaching economic and social impacts. Questions salinity experts often grapple with are: How much salt can crop and pasture species tolerate? How can treated sewage water be reused? And what needs to be done to develop plants with improved salt tolerance?

These and similar questions will be discussed at the 3rd International Salinity Forum being co-organized by the Water Science and Policy Center (WSPC) at the University of California, Riverside and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Salinity Laboratory.

The forum will take place June 16-18, 2014, at the Riverside Convention Center, 3443 Orange Street, Riverside. Participants from more than 30 countries will attend.

A full program can be found here. Registration, which costs $600 per person, can be made here. The registration fee is waived for reporters interested in covering the forum or portions of it. Interested reporters must coordinate their free registration before June 16, 2014, with Carol O'Brien.

The international salinity forum series was initiated with the first forum in 2005, coordinated by the UC Water Resources Center, the Salinity Laboratory, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.

The 3rd International Salinity Forum takes place five years after the previous internatio
