Academic, public, non-profit, and private organizations are potentially eligible recipients for Science Collaborative funding. All teams, however, must work in partnership with a Reserve. Learn more here.
Collaborative Research at the Reserve
eDNA in Estuaries
The Hudson River Reserve was one of six Research Reserves to assess environmental DNA (eDNA) collected from water and sediment as a biological monitoring technique in estuaries.
Storm Surge Barriers
Gated storm surge barriers are being considered for coastal storm risk management for the New York City metropolitan area. The Hudson River Research Reserve analyzed their potential influence on the Estuary.
Dams & Sediment on the Hudson (DaSH)
Hundreds of tributary dams have altered the way that sediment moves through the Hudson River Estuary. This project aimed to quantify the effects of removing these dams on sediment transport and wetland sustainability.
This initiative, begun in 2008 and led by the Reserve, generates science-based information about the best shoreline management options for preserving important natural functions, especially in light of climate change.
