Summary Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) Expedition 317 drilled four sites on a shelf-to-slope transit across the Canterbury Margin located off the east coast of the South Island, New Zealand. The purpose of this study was to petrographically analyze the Holocene-Pleistocene sandy intervals to determine how sand composition within the offshore Canterbury succession reflects the influence of both south-to-north (shore-parallel) and west-to-east (shore-perpendicular) sediment transport.
