  3. 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
