  1. Historic Core- Co-Chief Scientists Dr. Melvin N.A. Peterson, left, and Dr. N. Terence Edgar are shown aboard the Deep Sea Drilling Project drilling ship, Glomar Challenger, with a core of altered basic igneous rock. The historic core was recovered at Site 10 on the second leg of DSDP from beneath 1,500 feet of Cretaceous and Tertiary sediment in 15,400 feet of water in the Western North Atlantic Ocean. Visible in the core liner is altered basic igneous basement rock overlain by white marble. Scripps Institutiion of Oceanography is operating institution for the $12.6 million Deep Sea Drilling Project.

  4. Deep Sea Explorer - This is a starboard view of the Deep Sea Drilling Project drilling vessel, Glomar Challenger, which is drilling and coring for ocean sediment in all the oceans of the world. Scripps Institution of Oceanography, of the University of California at San Diego, is managing institution for DSDP under a $34.8 million contract with the National Science Foundation. The drilling vessel is owned and operated by Global Marine, Inc., of Los Angeles, which holds a subcontract with Scripps to do actual drilling and coring work. The Glomar Challenger weighs 10,400 tons, is 400 feet long and the million-poind hoot-load capacity drilling derrick stands 194 feet above the waterline. She is the first of a new generation of heavy drilling ships capable of conducting drilling operations in open ocean, using dynamic positioning to maintain postiion over the bore-hole. A re-entry capability was established on June 14, 1970, which will enable the changing of drill bits and re-entering the same bore-hole in the deep ocean. Forward is the automatic pipe racker, designed by Global Marine, Inc. which holds 24,000 feet of 5-inch drill pipe.

  6. DRILL BIT FOR PACIFIC SITES-A three-cone roller core bit made with tungsten carbide inserts and standard rock bit components which will be used in deep Pacific Ocean sediment on Leg 17 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project is being inspected by three men who will be on the expedition, and Dr. N. Terence Edgar, Chief Scientist for DSDP. Left to right, Dr. Edward L. Winterer, of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Dr. Edgar, Mr. Ed Maxwell of Sun Oil Company, and Mr. John I. Ewing, of Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory. Dr. Winterer and Mr. Ewing will be Cruise Co-Chief Scientists on the expedition which will leave Honolulu on April 1. Mr. Maxwell will be Cruise Operations Manager.

  8. ALL SMILES AFTER SUCCESSFUL VOYAGE- Christopher C. von der Borch, left of Flinders University, Bedford Park, South Australia, and John G. Sclater, of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, cruise co-chief scientists for Leg 22 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project, were all smiles when they came ashore after two months aboard D/V Glomar Challenger to the docks at Colombo, Ceylon. The expedition from Darwin, Australia, to Colombo was highly successful, both scientifically and technically. 1972

  10. RECORD BASALT RECOVERY- Robert L. Fisher, Research Geologist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, holds a section of fresh basalt breccia, a volcanic rock cored from 80.5 meters into the igneous basement that underlies more than 500 meters of deep-sea sediment in the central Indian Ocean. His cruise Co-Chief Scientist on Leg 24 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project, Elizabeth T. Bunce, left, associate scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Mass., stands behind the tungsten carbide insert roller cone bit that made the record hard-rock penetration aboard D/V Glomar Challenger in June 1972. This basaltic core consists of glass with minor inclusions of white carbonate sediment, and is of Lower Oligocene age -- about 30 million years old. June 1972

  11. BASALT ROCK STUDY - Joseph F. Fischer of the University of Texas at Arlington (foregound) sailed as an igneous petrologist on the scientific staff aboard D/V Glomar Challenger for Leg 37 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. Here Fischer catalogs numerous pieces of basaltic rock recovered during the Atlantic Ocean drilling and coring. 1974
