Hudson River on the Rise

Hudson River on the Rise:  Waterfront Planning for Communities and Nature was a day-long conference intended to advance resiliency planning for the Hudson Estuary’s unique natural and community resources in an age of sea-level rise. 

Hudson River Hydrodynamic Modeling

On January 31, 2012, a forum to spark discussion about using hydrodynamic modeling as a tool to investigate how climate change might impact the Hudson River Estuary was convened in New York City. NYSERDA, NYSDEC Hudson River Estuary Program, and the Training Program collaborated to bring together hydrodynamic modelers and model users. This workshop resulted in a white paper.
