  4. Jerry Bode, center, Dennis Graham (with headphones) and Phil Stott, (right) are on the fantail of D/V Glomar Challenger (ship) pulling in a hydrophone streamer, part of the ship's seismic profiling equipment, prior to drilling at Site 415 on Leg 50 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project in the Atlantic Ocean off Morocco. The hydrophone array, some 300 feet long, at the end of a 1,000-foot cable had to be retrieved before the vessel could stop and drilling and coring could start. The seismic profiling equipment, which uses sound waves as an energy source, looks at the structure of the sediment below the sea floor and records the echoes electronically on a recorder in the Electronics Laboratory aboard ship. 1976.

  5. Technician William J. Brennan, aboard the D/V Glomar Challenger (ship) helped place a new air gun into the water for a check before beginning Leg 51 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project in the harbor of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The air gun, which was a larger version of the bolt equipment the ship had used since 1968, was towed approximately 100 feet behind the ship and fired between 500 and 2,000 pounds of pressure at 10 second intervals. It was the sound source (in conjunction with a smaller air gun for better definition) for seismic profiling records. The larger gun, a 120 cubic inch PAR, provided deeper penetration. With these guns seismic records provided a reliable picture of sub-ocean bottom topography. November 1976.

  13. Principal electronics technician David Havens turns the wheel which adjusts vertical angle on the new satellite weather antenna, state of the art antenna for its time, installed aboard D/V Glomar Challenger (ship) during the port call at Agana, Guam, between Legs 59 and 60 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. The big wheel at the bottom takes care of the horizontal angle. Shipboard data tables are provided for the required horizontal and vertical antenna angles. Information is received from a satellite in stationary orbit and processed by shipboard equipment to produce a weather map which enables the captain, scientists and operations personnel to get weather forecasts 18 hours in advance at any drilling and coring site. 1978.
