Abstract

Data were collected during a dye-dispersion study on a 6-mile, tide-affected reach of the Hudson River near the proposed Cornwall Pumped Storage Project on September 21-22, 1977. The results indicated that complete mixing did not occur during the first tidal cycle but was complete after two or more cycles. The fluorometric dye-tracing procedure was used to determine the dispersion characteristics of the water mass. Rhodamine WT dye, 20-percent solution, was continuously injected on the west side of the river throughout an ebb tide, and its movement was monitored during a 30-hour period. Samples were collected both individually and continuously. Automatic dye samplers were used at selected cross sections near each bank. Bathymetric measurements were made at eight cross sections between Newburgh and West Point to determine the depths. (Woodard-USGS)
