  6. During visit of 81 Russian scientists and technician to Scripps Institution of Oceanography recently (June 20), Dr. Melvin N.A. Peterson, at right, of Del Mar, co-principal investigator and manager of the Deep Sea Drilling Project, presents set of "Initial Reports of Deep Sea Drilling Project" to Dr. Alexander Lisitzin, second from left. Dr. Lisitzin, a geochemist with Institute of Oceanology, USSR Academy of Sciences, is chief scientist aboard Russian reserch vessel Mendeleev during ship's current four-months' expedition into Pacific Ocean. Looking on are, from left, Dr. E.M. Suzymumov, deputy chief, Department of Marine Expeditions, USSR Academy of Sciences; Dr. Y.A. Bogdanov, deputy chief scientist of the expedition; and ship's Capt. Anatoly S. Svitaylo. Mendeleev was berthed at San Pedro and group came to La Jolla by bus to visit Scripps scientists. Scripps manages DSDP for National Science Foundation.

  7. Evaluation Panel - Members of the Deep Sea Drilling Project's Technical Evaluation Committee meeting at Scripps Institution of Oceanography with Project officials to evaluate a proposed Formation Tester, a new safety-test tool. The new tool is a device that may be run as part of the drill string (while drilling) just above the bit. The tool is expected to increase the safety of DSDP deep ocean operations and increase their capability by allowing engineers and scientists to measure formation pressures and sample fluids in the deep bore hole. The proposed Formation Tester could have the ability to identify potential troublesome high pressure zones before hole conditions become too critical. In addition, the new tool will have a limited capability to seal off the bore hole in competent formations and pump high-weight mud or cement above the packer seal. Conferees, l to r, were James T. Dean, Member, Global Marine Inc., Archie R. McLerran, National Science Foundation Field Project Officer for DSDP; Robert D. Townsend, Jr., Member, Mobile Technical Services, Inc.; Stanley T. Serocki, DSDP Development Engineer; John R. Shore, Member Chevron Oil Field Research Company; William F. Allinder, Member, Texaco, Inc.; Melvin N.A. Peterson, DSDP Principal Investigator and Project Manager; T.C. Bangs, Member Union Oil Company and Frank C. MacTernan, DSDP Deputy Project Manager

  8. Ground Breaking at S.I.O. - With an earth-moving machine in the background waiting to go to work, Dr. M.N.A. Peterson, right, and Mr. A.R. McLerran, break ground for an additional Deep Sea Drilling Project building at Scripps Institutioin of Oceanography. Dr. Peterson is Principal Investigator and Project Manager of the Deep Sea Drilling Project, while Mr. McLerran is the National Science Foundatin Field Project Officer for DSDP. The new building, located East of the original Project building on La Jolla Shores Drive, will be a partial two-storey structure with the entire lower floor designed for core storage and handling. Laboratories and office space will be located on the second floor. The new structure will cost an estimated $260,000.

  9. 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.
