Day in the Life of the Hudson and Harbor, NY Department of Enviornmental Conservation

Each autumn, thousands of students take part in the annual "Day in the Life of the Hudson and Harbor" event. Students collect data to create snapshots of the river at more than 90 sites. They share their data online so they can see how their piece of the river fits into the larger Hudson ecosystem. "A Day in the Life" is a joint effort of DEC's Hudson River Estuary Program and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) of Columbia University. Teams of students and educators use seine nets, water testing kits, and measuring tools to investigate aquatic life, water chemistry, core samples, tides, and weather. Findings developed by the program are made available to all.
