Figure 3.5. Map of the Hudson estuary showing the location of the salt front (approximately 1 psu) during different discharge conditions (adapted from Abood 1974). Discharge of 100 m3/s typically occurs during dry summer months, whereas the typical freshet discharge is around 2,000 m3 /s. The highest observed discharge is slightly more than 4,000 m3 /s.
