2019 Hudson Data Jam Competition

Making data "sing" through creative expression

Now in its sixth year, the Hudson Data Jam Competition challenges students to creatively tell the science stories of the Hudson River watershed.

Level 1: Hudson River Temperature at Poughkeepsie (1946-2012)

Level 1: Hudson River Temperature at Poughkeepsie (1946-2012)

 

These data show the annual average water temperature for the Hudson River at Poughkeepsie, NY from 1946-2012.

Data were collected at the Poughkeepsie Water Treatment Facility, and three USGS survey sites (below Poughkeepsie [01372058], South Dock at West Point [01374019], and south of Hastings on Hudson [01376304]). 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.

Data were published in "Climate change drives warming in the Hudson River Estuary, New York (USA)" by David Seekell and Mike Pace in the Journal of Environmental Monitoring, 2011(13): 2321-2327.
