News Item Western U.S. and Western Australia: Shared Water Challenges

With more than 9,000 miles separating them, California and Western Australia might not seem to have much in common. However, the two regions mirror each other when it comes to important freshwater and marine issues ranging from agricultural pressures on groundwater to ocean acidification.

To find solutions, Stanford University (through the Stanford Woods Institute) and the University of Western Australia (UWA) are jointly promoting the development of collaborative research projects focused on finding solutions to major freshwater and marine sustainability challenges.
