Data Set Name Description Theme Metadata
Hudson River Estuary Data and Maps The NYSDEC Hudson River Estuary Program in collaboration with numerous partners has supported the mapping of biologic, chemical, and physical characteristics of the Hudson River Estuary. This effort has been organized through several separate projects including the Benthic Mapping Project that has mapped the physical environment, the Submerged Aquatic Vegetation Mapping Project that has mapped the extent of submerged aquatic vegetation, and the Biocriteria Project that has conducted extensive sampling of chemical contaminants in the sediments of the estuary floor as part of an effort to develop one or more biological indicators that can be used to assess the ecological condition of the estuary through long-term monitoring. Data products from these projects include remote sensing images, point sample data, and interpretive maps.  Elevation

Hudson River Estuary Bathymetry Tidal Datums
 SHAPE
These raster grids approximate the deviation of the Mean Higher High Water (MHHW) or Mean Lower Low Water Level (MLLW) tidal datum surface from the Mean Sea (River) Level (MSL) or North American Vertical Datum 1988 (NAVD88) for most of the tidal Hudson River.

Metadata
Hudson River Estuary Flow Model
 SHAPE
Compilation of simulated riverside water circulation statistics from a high-resolution numerical model along the tidal Hudson River for the year 2010 and characterization of the physical environment (water levels, currents, vertical current stresses and mixing, and surface wind waves) impacting the Hudson River shoreline.

Hudson River Estuary Sediment Profile Imagery
 SHAPE
Photographic images taken in the vertical plane across the sediment-water interface provide information about the physical and biological environment of the Hudson River Estuary floor.

 SHAPE File covers entire Hudson River Estuary

Metadata
Hudson River Estuary Sediments - Sediment Age (Lead)
 SHAPE
The distribution and thickness of a layer of 20th century sediments in the Hudson River Estuary is derived from tracing this sediment layer on a grid of subbottom acoustic profiles and correlating this layer with thickness of sediments containing elevated lead content found in a suite of sediment cores. The raster file contains point values of thickness of 20th century sediment accumulation in the Hudson River.
