The study of contaminant chronologies in sediments of the Hudson River and the New York/New Jersey Harbor complex is a long term, multicon-taminant effort that combines data and insights gained from many specific studies carried out over several decades. Grants from the Hudson River Foundation (HRF), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Energy, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), NJ Department of Environmental Protection, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Science (NIEHS) have funded numerous scientists and graduate students at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and RPI where much of the work summarized above was carried out and continues. We specifically thank the HRF for support spanning more than two decades, the NIEHS for support of the Superfund Basic Research Program grant to Mt. Sinai Medical Center (P42 ES07384), and an Environmental Health Center grant to the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health (P30 ES09089), and NYSDEC for current funding supporting collaboration with scientists of the Contaminated Sediments Section, true partners in the search for well-dated cores. This is LDEO contribution number 6447.
