Hudson River Water Temperature Data
These data show the annual average water temperature for the Hudson River at Poughkeepsie, NY from 1946-2012.
We have a related lesson on climate change and rising temperatures in the Hudson Valley, which you may wish to complete before using this dataset.
Data were collected at the Poughkeepsie Water Treatment Facility, and three USGS survey sites (below Poughkeepsie , South Dock at West Point , and south of Hastings on Hudson ). The data were then averaged to create annual means. The deviation shows the years with above-average temperatures (values>0.0) and below-average temperatures (values<0.0) for the Hudson River.
