Approximately 70 schools with over 3350 students, teachers and education partners gathered on the Hudson River on this beautiful Autumn day to carefully sample and learn about this incredible local resource. The event was 'A Day in the Life of the Hudson River 2010'. A watershed that was brimming from recent rain events greeted the student samplers at the many river sites. How did this effect the data collected? Check the data below to see but we will note that the 'salt front', noted as 100 ppm Cl-, was just above Croton at HR Mile 36. Pick a site or a parameter to get a better "look" at the day!
