  10. 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.

Shirshov Institute of Oceanology, USSR Academy of Sciences, Moscow, USSR; David Ross, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, Massachusetts; and Ken J. Hsu, Geologisches Institut der ETH, Zurich, Switzerland, compare the structure of sedimentary core material recovered at Sites 380 and 381 in the Black Sea. Recovery of these cores was made on Leg 42B of the Deep Sea Drilling Project which was managed by Scripps Institution of Oceanography under contract to the National Science Foundation. Neprochnov and Ross were the Co-Chief Scientists on the cruise that began and ended in Istanbul, Turkey and Hsu served as the Sedimentologist on the scientific team. 1975.
