Every year, students all up and down the Hudson River estuary participate in A Day In The Life of The Hudson, a scientific “snapshot” of the river. This year, we were part of it!

Chemistry: testing the water quality at Valentino Pier

Silverside? Mummichog? Let’s find out!

Recording site conditions, including wind direction and intensity using the Beaufort Scale.
