  2. (Left to right) Philip E. Jackson, Arthur Eugene Maxwell and Richard E. Blumberg on aboard R/V Spencer F. Baird (ship) while on the Capricorn Expedition (1952-1953). They are shown here lowering the heat probe which records temperatures at various depths of the bottom sediments. The heat probe was used for the first successful heat flow measurements of the seafloor during the Expedition. 1952.

  3. Left to right: Robert Floyd Dill, Walter Heinrich Munk, Richard Blumberg preparing to lower a deep-sea camera enclosed in a watertight case into the ocean. Cut off from the top of this photo is the strobe unit in a similar turret above the camera, which supplies the light source for the camera. The flat disk at the very bottom of this devise is called the "shoe" which actually touches the sea-floor. This photo was taken during the Scripps Institution of Oceanography's Capricorn Expedition (1952-1953). 1952.
