The Hudson River Estuary Program's educators have begun production of short PowerPoint presentations featuring remotely sensed Hudson River data readily available on the internet. The shows promote development of skills in interpreting graphs and formulating and testing hypotheses to explain phenomena, as well as exploring physical and biological attributes of the Hudson estuary ecosystem.
The shows are only ten slides long, facilitating their use in often crowded syllabi. Notes accompanying each slide provide explanations and additional information about phenomena illustrated.
Two PowerPoints are available for download below, one covering the basics of the Hudson’s tides, the second examining the various ways in which storms impact water levels in the estuary.
