  8. Oil-Laden Core-Dr. Maurice Ewing (left), of Lamont Geological Observatory, looks at a piece of oil-laden sedimentary core being held by Dr. J. Lamar Worzel, also of Lamong. The two noted geophysics were Co-Chief Scientists on the first leg of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. The oil core was recovered at the Sigsbee Knoll in the Gulf of Mexico in 11,743 feet of water with drill bit penetration 480 feet threough the floor of the Gulf. Holding the plastic core container at the right is Jim Dean, of Mobile Oil who was Cruise Operations Manager aboard the drill ship, Glomar Challenger

  10. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution geophysicists, Arthur E. Maxwell, left, and Richard P. Von Herzen, were Co-Chief Scientists for the Third Leg of the Deep Sea Drilling Project, directing the scientific program aboard the drill ship Glomar Challenger across the Mid-Atlantic Ridge from Dakar to Rio de Janeiro, beginning around December 1. Here with an oscilloscope in the background, Maxwell and Von Herzen examine the temperature sensing element of a heart probe used in conjunction with retrievable coring operations. Both men received their Ph.D. degrees from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, managing institution for the Deep Sea Drilling Project. 1968
