  38. D/V Glomar Challenger - This starboard side view of the Deep Sea Drilling Project's drilling research vessel, Glomar Challenger, was taken in the Atlantic Ocean. The 10,500 ton vessel is 400 feet long, has a beam of 65 feet and a loaded draft of 20 feet. She is a new generation of drilling ships owned by Global Marine, Inc., of Los Angeles, California capable of conducting drilling operations in the open sea using dynamic positioning to maintain position over a bore hole. Visible amidships is the drilling derrick which stands 194 feet above the waterline. Below, not visible, is the 20 X 22 foot center well in which is mounted the guide shoot and through which the bit, drill pipe and other tools are lowered during drilling operations. Forward of the derrick is the Global Marine-designed automatic pipe racker (partially visible) containing 24,000 feet of 5-inch drill pipe. D/V Glomar Challenger is the drilling vessel for the Deep Sea Drilling Project which is managed by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, of the University of California at San Diego, under a contract with the National Science Foundation

  43. D/V Glomar Challenger. The 10,500 ton vessel is 400 ft. long, has a beam of 65 ft. and a loaded draft of 20 ft. She is owned and operated by Glomar Marine Inc. (GMI), of Los Angeles, under a subcontract with SIO. She is capable of conducting drilling operations in the open sea using dynamic positioning to maintain position over a borehole. Admidships is the drilling derrick which stands 194 ft. above the waterline. Below the derrick (not visible) is the 20 X 20 ft. center well ("moon-pool") in which is mounted the guide shoe and through which the drill pipe, bit and other tools are lowered and pulled up during drilling operations. Forward of the derrick is the GMI-designed auto matic pipe racker which normally contains 23,000 ft. of 5-inch S-135 drill pipe. Quarters for the crew and scientific staff are located aft, as are all scientific laboratory spaces.

  44. 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.

  48. Dynamic Positioning and Re-Entry. Schematic diagram showing general arrangements allowing positioning of the drilling vessel in deep water and technique of drill hole re-entry. The re-entry cone, on the sea floor, is 16 ft. in diameter and is mounted on steel casing in the upper part of the borehole, where it is inserted as the initial borehole is started. When the casing and core are fully in place, the assembly is detached from the drill string and the hole is drilled deeper. To change a bit, for example, the drill string is recovered to the ship, the bit is changed, and then again lowered to just above the cone. The vessel is moved as necessary to position the bit directly above the cone, as seen by side scanning sonar, at which time re-entry is made by lowering the pipe.
