Microstructure, CTD and ADCP data collected from R/V ONRUST in Hudson River Estuary during 6 short cruises from 1994-05-19 to 2001-05-01 (NCEI Accession 0146260)

Observations of turbulent mixing, stratification and currents in the Hudson River Estuary made in 6 short cruises in 1994/1995 and 2001 were assembled. The lower Hudson River is a “partially mixed estuary” with large fortnightly and seasonal variations. In terms of flow dynamics, it represents a tidally forced, stratified shear flow with regions of static instability, well-mixed regions, stably stratified regions with subcriticial gradient Richardson numbers, Ri<<1/4, and highly stable regions. Observations include more than 6000 microstructure/CTD profiles accompanied by velocity measurements with a ship-mounted, 600-kHz ADCP. Ancillary data and documentation are provided.

Purpose Quotation from Peters & Bohorst (2000, JPO): This is the first of two companion papers analyzing profiling microstructure observations from the HUDMIX Experiment in the Hudson River estuary in August– October 1995. The experiment was designed to quantify the turbulent transports of momentum and salt and to relate them to local and estuary-wide dynamical balances. The basic objective is to analyze how estuarine mixing arises and how it influences the overall estuarine dynamics.
