  1. Ancient Nile River Mud Core - William B.F. Ryan, left, of Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory, and Kenneth J. Hsu, center of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, show Travis Rayborn, of Global Marine Inc., a core of ancient Nile River abyssal sediment recovered on the Mediterranean Sea Ridge during Leg Thirteen of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. Ryan and Hsu were cruise-co-chief scientists, while Rayborn was drilling superintendent for the Glomar Challenger drilling and coring crews. 1970

  2. Evaporite Core - An evaporite core taken from the Mediterranean Seaduring Leg Thirteen of the Deep Sea Drilling Project is shown in the core liner by Cruise Co-Chief Scientists Drs. Kenneth J. Hsu, left, and Dr. William B.F. Ryan, right. Charles Simon, of the Glomar Challenger drilling crew, is in the middle. An evaporite is a chemical precipitation formed from evaporation of salt or sea water. Dr. Hsu is from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, while Dr. Ryan is from Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory.

  3. Secretary at Sea - Sue Strain (right), of El Centro. Is normally a secretary for the Deep Sea Drilling Project at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. However, she went to sea on Leg Thirteen as secretary to the cruise co-chief scientists. Above, Strain holds some Mediterranean Sea core samples encased in plastic liners along with Louise Henry, who also was aboard the drilling vessel Glomar Challenger as a technician. The 194-foot-tall drilling derrick which is located amidships can be seen in the background. 1970

  4. QUEENSLND PLATEAU CORE-Deep Sea Drilling Project Leg 21 Cruise Co-Chief Scientists Dr. James E. Andrews, right of the Department of Oceanography, University of Hawaii, and Dr. Robert E. Burns, center of the Joint Oceanographic Research Group, University of Washington (Seattle), join Cruise Operrations Manager Theodore C. (Ted) Bangs, of the Union Oil Commpany, Santa Fe Springs, California, who is on loan to DSDP, to inspect a sedimentary core of deep sea ooze taken at Site 209 on the Queensland Plateau which is located Northeast of Australia. Water depth at the site was 4,593 feet. A portion of the drilling derrick aboard D/V Glomar Challenger is in the background. Scientists and drillers recovered 4,556 feet of core material during leg 21 which was from Suva, Fiji to Darwin, Australia.
