A new study describing the contribution of the receding Salton Sea on particulate levels in the Coachella Valley that was directed by Roya Bahreini, Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Environmental Toxicology faculty member, has been published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology.  Justin Dingle, an ETOX graduate student, and Samantha Ying, an ETOX faculty member were also co-authors.  The first author was Alexander Frie, an Environmental Sciences graduate student.  A news release on the article can be found in the UCR Today website.  The article itself can be found here.  Our congratulations to Alexander, Justin Samantha and Roya for this important article describing a major and emerging environmental problem in California.  [The graphic above is from the ES&T article.]
