|New York Landscape Regions in Google Earth: Hudson Mohawk Lowlands|
The Hudson Mohawk Lowlands tour is part of the New York Landscape Regions Collection of Google Earth tours, created by a group of New York State science educators. This tour introduces students to limestone quarrying along the western shore of the Hudson River south of Catskill, New York. They can follow the courses of the Mohawk River and Erie Canal eastward to the Cohoes Falls and the confluence of the Mohawk with the Hudson River. It also provides a look at issues involved with the cleanup of PCB-laden sediments in the Hudson River.
