  4. 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.

  9. The D/V Glomar Challenger (ship) was a deep sea research and scientific drilling vessel for oceanography and marine geology studies and used primarily for the Deep Sea Drilling Project. Scripps Institution of Oceanography was the managing institution under contract to the National Science Foundation (NSF) for the project. The vessel was operated by the Global Marine Corporation; Glomar is a truncation of Global Marine. The second part of its name came as a tribute to the accomplishments of the oceanographic survey vessel HMS Challenger. The ship is seen here off the coast of Coast Rica. 1982.
