CIRCULATION AND SEDIMENT TRANSPORT IN THE HUDSON SHELF VALLEY

Description: Field experiments have been carried out to understand the transport of sediments and associated contaminants in the Hudson Shelf Valley, offshore of New York. The valley is a sink and potential conduit for the movement of sediments and associated contaminants across the shelf. A winter experiment (2000-2001) investigated the role of winter storms in transporting sediments in the valley. A spring experiment (2006) explored transport during the period of spring runoff from the Hudson River. The spring experiment was carried out in cooperation with LaTTE (Lagrangian Transport and Tracer Experiment).

Duration: Winter Experiment: December 1999 - April 2000
                 Spring Experiment: April - June 2006

USGS Principal Investigator: B. Butman

Collaborators: Winter: Courtney Harris (USGS and now at VIMS), Peter Traykovski (WHOI).
                          Spring: Bob Chant and Scott Glenn (Rutgers).
