Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The primary objective of CCGS Hudson expedition 2016-011 Phase 1 is to improve our understanding of geological processes offshore Nova Scotia. Specifically, this expedition will allow us to : 1) carry out high-resolution seismic surveys perpendicular to the outer slope; 2) collect sediment cores to confirm the nature of the sediments imaged by seismic surveys; 3) measure the recurrence of sediment transport events during the late-Quaternary along deep-water submarine channels; 4) evaluate the recurrence rates of large submarine landslides to evaluate their significance in terms of geohazards; and 5) assess the stability of Nova Scotia's outer slope.
