  2. BUMPER SUB INSPECTION - Bruce C. Heezen, right, of Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory, and Ian D. MacGregor, center, of the University of California at Davis, Cruise Co-Chief Scientists on Leg 20 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project, discuss with Cruise Operations Manager Lamar P. Hayes the function of a bumper sub aboard D/V Glomar Challenger. Normally, three bumper subs each with a five-foot stroke - are used on a drilling string which permits the bottom hole assembly and drill bit to remain at the bottom of the bore-hole by compensating for the heave of the vessel while in the process of drilling and recovering sedientary core material. 1971

  14. Drill Floor Activity -Roughnecks aboard D/V Glomar Challenger are running steel casing in one of the holes drilled during leg 37 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. Casing had to be run in the holes to protect from cave-in when re-entry allowed deep penetration of basaltic rock.
