Hudson River Snapshot Day 2007

"A Day in the Life of the Hudson River"


October 2, 2007

A year when the salt front had risen to close to record highs (RM 78.2 on 10/2/07) - brought changes to our fish catches & other readings.

A year when we had the opportunity to include an Upper Hudson River site to our collection data base and our school network.

A year when we found 'sister schools' sampling 32 miles apart but connected through the New York City watershed.
