    Deep Sea Drillers-With a portion of the 194-foot drilling derrick behind them, the "Big Three" of the Fifty Leg of the Deep Sea Drilling Project examine a sedimentary core on the deck of the drilling research vessel, Glomar Challenger. Left to right, Dean A. McManus, Co-Chief Scientist, William F. Allinder of Texaco, Inc., Cruise Operations Manager, and Robert E. Burns, Co-Chief Scientist. McManus and Burns are from the University of Washington (Seattle), and they directed the scientific program from San Diego to Honolulu. Bill Allinder represents Scripps Institution of Oceanography and DSDP on the Challenger and is responsible for the technical and operational success of the first leg in the Pacific. 1968

    Evaporite Core - An evaporite core taken from the Mediterranean Seaduring Leg Thirteen of the Deep Sea Drilling Project is shown in the core liner by Cruise Co-Chief Scientists Drs. Kenneth J. Hsu, left, and Dr. William B.F. Ryan, right. Charles Simon, of the Glomar Challenger drilling crew, is in the middle. An evaporite is a chemical precipitation formed from evaporation of salt or sea water. Dr. Hsu is from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, while Dr. Ryan is from Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory.

    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
