Each year we work with science research partners in analyzing the data we collect during the 'Day in the Life' event. Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory has worked with us to look at sediment samples, enterococcus, benthic (bottom) mapping and chlorophyll. In 2006 and 2007 we worked with Christian Miller and Dr. Bernhard Peucker-Ehrenbrink of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute on a National Science Foundation Funded project measuring two trace metals in the Hudson River (rhenium and molybdenum) . More information on this project will be posted as results become available. A copy of the testing protocols is attached here.
