Abstract

Data on channel geometry of the Hudson River estuary at 125 cross sections between the Federal Dam at Troy and the norhtern limits of New York City (133 miles) are presented for use in hydraulic modeling, tidal studies, traveltime and water-quality studies, and other uses requiring knowledge of Hudson River channel properties. The data were obtained from field surveys of the estuary conducted by boat with a fathometer in 1966-69. Water-surface elevations were not recorded during the fathometer runs but were calculated in 1979 from information on tide variations in the estuary and from stage data collected at Albany and New York City. Topographic maps and field reconaissance were used to extend the ends of the cross sections beyond 100-year flood stage. Channel-configuration data are presented as perspective plots and in a table; also included are strip maps showing the location of the cross sections. (USGS)
