NOAA Ship Thomas Jefferson retrieves side scan sonar after surveying the Hudson River
Immediately upon arriving on-scene overnight on Nov. 1, NOAA Ship Thomas Jefferson began surveying the area to search for sunken containers, debris, and shoaling that pose dangers to ships and lives. Using high tech side scan sonar equipment, Thomas Jefferson conducted the hydrographic survey of critical barge pathways in the Hudson River. Using information from this survey, the U.S. Coast Guard Captain of the Port was able to open the port to fuel barge traffic this morning.
