Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
A 5-day scientific expedition aboard CCGS Hudson in July 2021 focused on the continental slope area offshore SW Nova Scotia and resulted in geophysical and core sample acquisition. The focus was to develop a shallow geological framework spanning the glaciations. The data, once analyzed, will provide information on the magnitude and timing of multiple submarine landslides and the role the glacial sediments play in their failure.
