Lower Hudson River Sediment Flux Project
The Hudson River is a significant source of suspended sediment to New York Harbor where millions of dollars are spent annually maintaining navigation channels and disposing of dredged sediment. Understanding the amount of suspended sediment moving through the Hudson and the timing and mechanisms associated with that movement is a first step in reducing the need for and cost of dredging operations.
