Welcome to the Water issue of Penn Elements, an online magazine devoted to current environmental concerns published by the students and faculty of the University of Pennsylvania Master of Environmental Studies program. This issue’s feature articles, interviews, book reviews, events reports, and institutional profiles highlight a wide variety of water-related themes: water scarcity, management and treatment; pollution; floods; wildlife impacts; national and international policy challenges; and artistic opportunities. The diversity of perspectives on this vital resource reflects the interdisciplinary strengths of the MES student population as well as their dedication to the environment.
