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 2: Glass Eels in Hudson River Tributaries (Eel Project)

This dataset is in our set of highlighted projects, which means we've developed an expanded metadata file with more background information, resources, and sample inquiry questions. In addition, this dataset was reformatted this year to make it easier to use.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation monitors American eel (Anguilla rostrata) migrations in several Hudson River tributaries. This eel project is primarily focused on monitoring the glass eel migration. The glass eel is the juvenile life stage of the American eel. The glass eels are characterized by their miniature, transparent appearance. This is a simplified dataset created from the full data collected by the Eel Project.

There's a lot of other information available, so we recommend you look over the data file, the eel project report, and the NYSDEC eel project website for more ideas.
