The D/V Glomar Challenger (ship) was a deep sea research and scientific drilling vessel for oceanography and marine geology studies and used primarily for the Deep Sea Drilling Project. Scripps Institution of Oceanography was the managing institution under contract to the National Science Foundation (NSF) for the project. The vessel was operated by the Global Marine Corporation; Glomar is a truncation of Global Marine. The second part of its name came as a tribute to the accomplishments of the oceanographic survey vessel HMS Challenger. The ship is seen here off the coast of Coast Rica. 1982.
