Fresh & Salty (Water SIG)
The Fresh & Salty SIG provides a channel for the incorporation of marine and freshwater issues into the life and educational opportunities of the School. The main objectives of the SIG include: 1) to consolidate and expand the collective marine and freshwater knowledge and experience of students and faculty, and to encourage and provide a forum for interactive exchange of information and ideas; (2) to strengthen and encourage the base of knowledge in marine and freshwater policy and science within the curriculum; and (3) to develop linkages with institutions and organizations outside the Yale community to broaden opportunities for student research, internships, and employment in marine and freshwater science and policy positions. SIG events include: Lectures by external researchers, practitioners, and alumni who work in marine or freshwater science or policy; regular dinners with members and/or faculty where attendees meet to discuss current water events and professional/academic water experiences; and outings to relevant facilities such as wastewater treatment plants and the Yale-Peabody Marine Station.
