Of the samples that were found, there were plenty of tintinnids from Newtown Creek and skeletonema in the Hudson. During our next days we hope to find more alga.
We are now focusing on the samples in the lab under an improve design. The focusing is on the affects of Nitrate and Ammonia enrichment. We have replicated the Hudson River’s environment to fit our experiment. Instead of only sampling the Hudson River we are also expanding to the East River, Newtown Creek.
