International Society for Salt Lake Research


Saline lakes are common on every continent and are of considerable economic, ecological,  and scientific value. Since 1979, an informal international association of salt lake researchers from a  variety of disciplines have sponsored a series of triennial conferences to foster scientific exchange and  further our understanding of saline lakes. ISSLR was founded to establish effective liaison between persons interested in any aspect of inland  saline waters, to encourage these interests, and to educate the public in the scientific use, management,  and conservation of salt lakes.
