The Center for River and Estuaries is an association of scientists from Columbia University that study various aspects of rivers and estuaries world wide including the distribution of sediments, the transport and flux of sediments, contaminants, carbon, nutrients, organic material, and aerosols, the evolution and linkage of marshes and wetlands.

Much of the research of this center is done in the Hudson River in the vicinity of Columbia University. This opens also the opportunity for several outreach activities for communities, K-12, and higher education.
