Sea-Floor Sunday #48: Waterways around New York City

May 24, 2009

This week’s Sea-Floor Sunday highlights an article I saw a couple weeks ago in New York magazine called Secrets of the Deep. It’s a great piece talking about what lies beneath one of the busiest harbors in the world.

The article mentions various human-made ‘artifacts’ found in the Hudson and East rivers. The image below is a map showing multibeam bathymetry (red colors shallower, blue colors deeper) and location of features discussed in article.
