Dr. Findlay's research interests encompass characterization and microbial assimilation of dissolved organic carbon in aquatic ecosystems, delivery of carbon from terrestrial to aquatic ecosystems, carbon and nutrient processing in tidal wetlands and ecosystem functions mediated by submerged aquatic vegetation. He has been conducting research on the Hudson River ecosystem for over eighteen years, and is interested in watershed restoration issues as well as a variety of approaches to making scientific information more useful for ecosystem management.
A high-tech environmental monitoring station based at Marist College becomes the latest addition to the Hudson River Environmental Condition Observing System (HRECOS).
Whether it’s pulling up water chestnuts in the Hudson River, or searching out vernal pools—citizens can play a vital role in scientific research.
By the looks of it, we're in for quite a winter this year. Here in the Northeast, we've seen several heavy snowfalls, freezing temperatures, and icy roads.
Technology has transformed our ability to understand rivers. Take the Cary Institute's longstanding scientific program on the Hudson River.
In the U.S. alone, some 15 million tons of salt is applied to roadways each year. While its use has real benefits, in terms of safety and navigation, there have been cumulative costs to the environment.
Visitors to New York's Hudson River often comment on how "dirty" or murky its water appears. This murkiness is often taken as a sign of poor water quality. Why does the river look so muddy? And what does it mean?
Cary freshwater ecologist Stuart Findlay shares his research on the effects of road salt on water quality and discusses thresholds of concern for chloride concentrations in surface waters.
A group of Cornell students visit the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Sciences in Milbrook, NY for a week to measure trace gases.
