Four scientists from the Central Asian country (and two translators) visited the California Water Science Center's office in San Diego, CA, as part of a larger, nationwide tour of important scientific research areas of interest. Three CAWSC scientists lead the visitors in a discussion of important California water issues including the Salton Sea, current drought conditions, California's vast aquifer system, resource sustainability, hydrologic modeling software, and issues in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. After an informal meeting, CAWSC director Eric Reichard lead the delegates on a tour of the Center, including the Center's laboratories and a display of field gear.
