This article, published in Estuaries and Coasts in 2021, estimates sediment impounded behind dams, compares this with new estimates of watershed sediment yield, and assesses the potential fate for dam sediment released into the estuary.
This resource contains the webinar recording as well as the presenter slides and Q&A responses from the September 2020 webinar Dams and Sediment in the Hudson.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the July 2020 webinar Innovative Approaches to Integrating Research and K-12 Education to Advance Estuary Stewardship.
This open-access article, published Geophysical Research Letters in 2020, uses turbidity observations to characterize estuary response following extreme discharge such as from storm-related flooding, which can be a proxy for sediment release from dam removals.
This article, submitted for publication to Earth Surface Processes and Landforms in 2020, describes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson (DaSH) project related to tidal wetland growth in the Hudson River estuary as a result of human activities. It presents sediment accumulation rates in marshes along the Hudson and reveals the rapid growth of marshes associated with anthropogenic structures.
