This is a study of the dispersal of the Hudson River Plume in coastal waters using purposeful tracer. The focus is on the physical processes responsible for the mixing of the buoyant plume and its impact on the biological productivity of the region and the transformation of contaminant metals discharged in the river plume. The study area is embedded in an ocean monitoring observatory providing information on the forcing and large-scale circulation of the coastal region.
