We thank the USGS-Troy, New York for providing surface water monitoring data discussed here. Support for our research on the Hudson has been provided by several previous grants from the Hudson River Foundation for Science and Environmental Research. The Black Rock Forest Consortium provided support for our examination of precipitation chemistry data at West Point. Additional support has been provided to the authors by the National Institute of Environmental Health Science through grants to the Mailman School of Public Health of Columbia University (P30 ES09089) and to Mount Sinai School of Medicine of New York University (P42 ES07384). This is LDEO contribution number 6445.
