  8. 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

  11. Caribbean Sea Drilling Sites - Twelve drilling sites were proposed in the Caribbean Sea for Leg Fifteen of the Deep Sea Drilling Project which is being conducted by Scripps Institution of Oceanography. N. Terence Edgar, of Scripps, and John B. Saunders, of Texaco Trinidad Inc., cruise co-chief scientists for the expedition, plan to drill sites in the Venezuela and Columbia Basins utilizing a new technology (re-entry) that permits, in up to 15,000 feet of water, the engineers to pull up the drill string, replace a worn out bit and put the pipe back in the same hole on the ocean floor. Three sites - No. 3 in the Cariaco Trench, No. 5 on the Aves Swell, and No. 8 in the Venezuela Basin - will be drilled primarily to investigate the chemical properties of the cores and the water contained within the sediment. The interstitial or pore waters are instrumental in the formation of minerals and changes in sediment character after burial under the ocean floor. Cruise Operations Manager for the expedition will be Roy E. Anderson, of ESSO Exploration Inc., New York City. 14 October 1970
