The Salton Sea Aerial Photo Collection

The WRI is an outreach partnership between CSUSB and the Southern California communities we serve, driven by the vision that sustaining water resources rests on sound research, analysis and public policy collaboration. The Historical Aerial Photo Collection is comprised of images of Southern California beginning in the 1920's. The geographic areas include much of Southern California from deserts to the Pacific Ocean. The images in these flights are from the Joseph Andrew Rowe Water Resources Archives and represent various collections that are held by the Archives.

This group of photos is from the Salton Sea area, focusing mostly on the White River Watershed. Further information about these images is available and can be provided by contacting the WRI at (909) 537-7683. All images are copyrighted by the Water Resource Institute at CSU San Bernardino. If you are in need of accommodation for a disability in order to view or understand the following images, please contact the WRI at (909) 537-7683 for assistance.
