Day in the Life of the Hudson River – October 20th, 2016
Exploring Our Waterfront!
School groups from Troy to the New York Harbor are scientists for the day collecting data on river chemistry, fish and biology, salinity, temperature, turbidity, river sediments and more! Groups from elementary through AP High School and undergraduates join us in exploring their section of the Hudson River, and then sharing data through an estuary wide program. They tie their local sampling data to the rest of the river, creating a better understanding of the estuary as a whole.
Data from this year, as well as past years can be found at http://www.ldeo.columbia.edu/edu/k12/snapshotday/
Registration is closed for the 2016 event, but check out the website to see the results online.
No one can believe it! In 2015 there were 94 sample groups composed of 4494 students, 627 teachers and adult helpers for a staggering total of 5121 participating samplers!
