  1. Coccolith Ooze - This scanning electronic microscope picture, magnified 6,000 times, show Coccoliths mixed with Calcite crystals in a sample taken on Leg Seven of the Deep Sea Drilling Project (Guam to Honolulu). The sample was late Miocene in age and taken from about 656 ft. (200M) below the Pacific Ocean Floor.

  14. D/V Glomar Challenger (ship) at sea during Leg 91 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. This ship was the site of many advances in deep ocean drilling during the Deep Sea Drilling Project. This project (DSDP) was an international scientific ocean drilling program. Between the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Regents, University of California based out of Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Scientific planning was conducted under the auspices of the Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Sampling (JOIDES). The JOIDES advisory group consisted of 250 distinguished scientists from academic institutions, government agencies, and private industry from all over the world. The scientific results from Legs 1-96 were published describing the core materials and scientific data obtained at sea and in shore-based laboratories post-cruise. 1983.

  16. D/V Glomar Challenger - This starboard side view of the Deep Sea Drilling Project's drilling research vessel, Glomar Challenger, was taken in the Atlantic Ocean. The 10,500 ton vessel is 400 feet long, has a beam of 65 feet and a loaded draft of 20 feet. She is a new generation of drilling ships owned by Global Marine, Inc., of Los Angeles, California capable of conducting drilling operations in the open sea using dynamic positioning to maintain position over a bore hole. Visible amidships is the drilling derrick which stands 194 feet above the waterline. Below, not visible, is the 20 X 22 foot center well in which is mounted the guide shoot and through which the bit, drill pipe and other tools are lowered during drilling operations. Forward of the derrick is the Global Marine-designed automatic pipe racker (partially visible) containing 24,000 feet of 5-inch drill pipe. D/V Glomar Challenger is the drilling vessel for the Deep Sea Drilling Project which is managed by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, of the University of California at San Diego, under a contract with the National Science Foundation
