GREENPOINT - Researchers have taken soil from Brooklyn to study the environmental impact of flooding from Superstorm Sandy.

The storm flooded low-lying coastal areas in Brooklyn and officials say they aren't sure what the water left behind.

The researchers, who come from Vassar and Marist colleges, say they are looking to see if there is anything in the dirt or sediment. They are also looking to see if anything moved from contaminated sites.
