  6. Eocene Deep Sea Core-Dr. Joshua I. Tracey, Jr., left, of the U.S. Department of the Interior Geological Survey, William F. Allinder, center, of Texaco, Inc. and George H. Sutton of the University of Hawaii's Institute of Geophysics, inspec an Eocene deep sea core (approximately 60 milliion years old) in the Core Laboratory aboard the drilling research vessel, Glomar Challenger. This sample was recovered at Site 71 on Leg VIII of the Deep Sea DrillingProject in the Pacific Oceanin 14,500 feet of water and after a penetration of 1,800 feet into the ocean bottom. The core is cherty limestoe and was recovered in one of several attempts to get lithified rock during the 55-day cruise from Honolulu to Tahiti. Drs. Tracey and Sutton were Cruise Co-Chief Scientists. Mr. Allinter, who holds one of the heavy diamond bits used to recover cores during the deep ocean probe, was Cruise Operations Manager. Scripps Institution of Oceanography, of the University of California, San Diego, is managing institution for the Deep Sea Drilling Project under contract to the National Science Foundation.

  8. Radiolaria Skeletons - This scanning electron microscopy picture, magnified 100 times, shows skeletons of various forms of Radiolaria in sediment cores taken at Site 55 in the Caroline Ridge area of the Western Pacific Ocean by the Deep Sea Drilling Project. In life these tiny organisms llived near the ocean surface, and upon death their skeletons fell to the sea bed to become entombed in the sediments. Drill bit penetration of the ocean floor at the site was 429 feet and the water depth was 9,383 feet. By carefully studying them scientists can determine how long ago they lived and can learn much about the history of the ocean. Scripps Institution of Oceanography, of the University of California at San Diego, is managing institution for the Deep Sea Drilling Project under contract to the National Science Foundation. Scientific guidance for the Project is provided by the JOIDES Institutions.

Krasheninnikov, right, a micropaleontologist - both from the Institute of Oceanology, Academy of Sciences, Moscow, discuss a core sample taken on Leg 6 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project with Dr. Melvin N.A. Peterson, DSDP Chief Scientist. Because of the great depths reached in drilling and coring oiperations, the Soviet scientists said, "a new era has been opened in Marine Geology." Scripps Institution of Oceanography is managing institution for the $12.6 million Project

  13. Two Russian scientists, Valeriy A. Krasheninnikov, second from left, a paleontologist from the Academy of Science in Moscow, and Alezander P. Lisitzen, second from right, a geologist from the Institute of Oceanology, also in Moscow, were members of the Deep Sea Drilling Project Sixth Leg scientific team. They were welcomed aboard in Honolulu by Bruce C. Heezen, left of Columbia University, and Alfred G. Fischer, right of Princeton University. Heezen and Fischer were Co-Chief Scientists for the Honolulu to Guam leg which ended on August 5. Part of the 194-foot-tall derrick and other associated drilling and equipment is visible on the drilling floor of the Challenger. 1969
