The cruise of the C.S.S. Hudson in 1990 was a memorable introduction to marine geoscience and North Atlantic storms. Land- and sea-based geologists were thrown together to link land and sea sedimentary records and get a better understanding of the complex glaciation of Atlantic Canada.

Atlantic Canada is an amalgam of distinctive tectonic terranes, where lithic markers can be used to reconstruct glacial flow patterns (e.g., Stea and Pe-Piper 1999). Provenance analysis can also help to establish correlations between terrestrial and marine stratigraphic records. Once offshore ice margins and onshore flow lines are linked up, former Pleistocene glaciers can...
