In this puzzle, students examine three different sets of salinity data collected from the Hudson River
estuary in New York. The puzzle includes data collected along the length of the estuary on the
same date; data collected over a span of days that includes before, during, and after a rain event; and
finally data collected over a span of several months. Each piece of the puzzle allows students to extract
a different insight into the dynamic nature of the saltwater and freshwater mixing of an estuary—how an estuary varies over space, how it responds
to regional rain events, and how it varies with the season. This puzzle works well in an Earth science, environmental science, or oceanography class.
