Many of the world's saline lakes are shrinking at alarming rates, reducing waterbird habitat and economic benefits while threatening human health. Saline lakes are long-term basin-wide integrators of climatic conditions that shrink and grow with natural climatic variation. In contrast, water withdrawals for human use exert a sustained reduction in lake inflows and levels. Quantifying the relative contributions of natural variability and human impacts to lake inflows is needed to preserve these lakes.

Will this event be attended by non-EPSCoR participants: 
Yes

The Jail has an extensive ongoing horticulture program, and a classroom interaction session was a good fit to what the inmates were already learning. This location has only male inmates, so my audience was limited to male adults. I put up some slides, and it was a bi-directional conversation about Utah's water future, how water-wise plants and efficient irrigation can help in reducing water use, and how the inmates can explore career options in water-wise landscaping.

Yes

This event was a classroom workshop at the Girls' Transition Center, which is a juvenile detention center for girls in Salt Lake City. The girls ranged between 14 and 17. I had a short lecture prepared, where we interacted about water futures of Utah. The idea of speaking to a young audience was to motivate and encourage them into science in general, and water sciences in particular - rather than provide specific information about my research. The girls & I spoke about how I started studying water, why water quality and quantity are important, and how Utah fares in water resources.
