Review of The great ocean of truth, by Peter Wadhams
AbstractHudson-70 was an epic voyage by the Canadian research oceanographic ship CSS Hudson from 19 November 1969 to 16 October 1970. This major expedition was similar in scope to the Eltanin Southern Ocean cruises and the earlier Discovery and Meteor expeditions. It was, however, the first to focus on, and successfully complete, a circumnavigation of the Americas. The vessel carried out multidisciplinary scientific observations in the North and South Atlantic, Antarctic, Pacific and Arctic oceans and at that time was only the sixth ship to traverse the Northwest Passage in the Canadian Archipelago. It encountered polar sea ice and icebergs at the distal extremes of its voyage.
