  8. 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.

  12. An expanded record of the Cretaceous-Tertiary transition was discovered at Site 524. The transitional interval, in Core 20, Section 3 (large photo enclosed) is represented by red-mud deposits with intercalated turbidite sand layers. The muds immediately above the last Upper Cretaceous biogenic sediments are detrital clays and silts, mainly of volcaniclastic origin, with a minor amount of reworked plantonic fossils from the underlying Cretaceous formations. Rare occurrences of the chitinous nannofossils Thoracosphaera spp. And benthic foraminifera may be the only indigenous flora and fauna. The transition seems to record a sudden extinction of rich Cretaceous faunas and floras, and a gradual appearance of Tertiary species. Such a transition has been described on land sections, but the transition at Site 524 (Leg 73) is usually expanded to permit detailed investigations of the physical (temperature) and chemical (water chemistry) changes across the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary.

Ingle, of Stanford University, and Hans-Joachim Schrader of Kiel, West Germany, study samples of a core recovered on the Aleutian Trench. The core was taken in 16,152 feet of water after a penetration of 98 feet into the ocean floor. It was Uppermost Pleistocene - approximately a half million years old. The core contained diatoms (marine algae) and radiolaria (marine plankton). To the eye, the core was sticky gray clay with fine sand. Schrader is taking a 10cc sample in a polyethylene tube for further study. 1972.

  38. 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.

  40. Initial Drill for Re-Entry - This 14 7/8 inch four roller cone tungsten carbide insert roller bit is used to drill the initial hole after the re-entry cone has been landed on the ocean bottom. It is used to run the 16-inch casing which is hung below the cone. Then comes the 11 3/4-inch casing necessary to prevent deep penetration holes from filling up with debris. A similar 10-inches in diameter is used to drill the remainder of the hole.
