    ALEUTIAN TRENCH CORE STUDY - Three members of the scientific staff on Leg 18 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project, left to right, Sherwood W. Wise, Jr., of Zurich, Switzerland; James C. Ingle, of Stanford University, and Hans-Joachim Schrader of Kiel, West Germany, study samples of a core recovered on the Aleutian Trench. The core was taken in 16,152 feet of water after a penetration of 98 feet into the ocean floor. It was Uppermost Pleistocene - approximately a half million years old. The core contained diatoms (marine algae) and radiolaria (marine plankton). To the eye, the core was sticky gray clay with fine sand. Schrader is taking a 10cc sample in a polyethylene tube for further study. 1972.

    Ancient Caribbean Rocks-Ancient sediment rocks found deep beneath the Caribbean Sea are examined by Norman Terence Edgar of Scripps Institution of Oceanography (left) and John B. Saunders of Texaco Trinidad Inc. (right). Both were cruise co-chief scientists aboard the Deep Sea Drilling Project Glomar Challenger during a recent cruise in the Caribbean Sea when these samples were collected. Fossils in the sediments tell geologists that the Caribbean Sea is a relatively young feature in the earth's surface. 1971

    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
