Data and Tools
Hudson River Real-Time Data
Links to several different real-time data stations and data archive along the main Hudson River Estuary providing salinity, water level, and flow (mainly USGS sites).
Lamont and Riverkeeper Conductivity,Temperature, and Depth (CTD) casts
Temperature and salinity data taken at 27 locations on ~monthly runs from the Riverkeeper boat.
Bottom Mapping Data (Lamont)
Bathymetry, sidescan sonar and other data examples of the Benthic Mapping Projects that can be downloaded to GoogleEarth
Bottom Mapping Data (NYS DEC)
Interactive data are served from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) benthic mapper
Hudson River Data and Mapping Portal
The Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN), as an Earth Institute center, has partnered with the USGS National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII), to develop an array of online data as well as catalog and mapping tools for the Northeastern U.S. As a defining feature of the Northeast, the Hudson River watershed has been one of the first regions for which a wide range of tools has been developed include:
- An Internet Map Service (IMS), to browse and compose maps of the region
- Links to regional fisheries resource sites, to check details and status of local conservation, management and research and fish stocking programs
- Sources of geospatial data and mapping tools to support geospatial assessments of a local region or topic of interest
- Information on programs supporting data management and interoperability standards, via connections through other NBII nodes and IMS’s
Tidal Prediction Data: Lamont’s Xtide tool
Piermont Pier Real Time Data (access through Lamont Riverscope site)
New York Harbor Observation and Prediction System (Stevens Institute of Technology)
Jamaica Bay Research and Management Information Network (JBRMIN)
A one-stop shopping catalog and data portal for research activities found within the Jamaica Bay region. This critical estuarine system and its surrounding uplands support important breeding, feeding and nursery habitats both for resident and migratory fish, shore and wading birds. Maintained by CIESIN.
New York Area Biodiversity Research and Conservation Database (NYBD)
An online, interactive catalog and map portal of biodiversity and conservation research projects for the 31 county NY Metropolitan region. It has been designed to allow regional scientists to add project and place specific information on their respective research projects, and then share those data via catalog and map services. Includes links to important regional river and estuarine projects.
