  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. First re-entry core crew - It was a historic occasion early in the morning on Monday, June 15, 1970, when the first re-entry procedure core was hoisted on the drilling floor of D/V Glomar Challenger. Engineers, drilling crew members and scientists hold pieces of the gray, hemipelagic sediment. Back row, left to right, Leon Blurton, Global Marine Inc. Project Officer for re-entry; Kenneth E. Brunot, DSDP Project Manager; and V.F. (Swede) Larson, DSDP Operations Manager. Second row, A.C. Wheeler, Max Stillwell, Dan Womack, Travis Rayburn and Homer Smith, of the drilling crew. Rayburn was drilling superintendent. Front row, Dr. Terry Edgar, DSDP Coordinating Staff Geologist, DSDP Chief Scientist Melvin N.A. Peterson, Charles Simon and Art Bedwell, of the drilling crew.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

Scientists used these sediments in order to interpret the origin and history of the development of the Atlantic Ocean. Holding the historic core on the drill floor of D/V Glomar Challenger are, left to right, Cruise Co-Chief Scientists Dr. Charles D. Hollister, of Woods Hole Ocanographic Institution,&Mr. John I. Ewing, of Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory, and Cruise Operations Manager James A. Dawson, of Gulf Oil Company.
