Abstract

Continental Drilling, a 56-page report of the Workshop on Continental Drilling at Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, New Mexico, June 10–13, 1974, has been published by the Carnegie Institution of Washington. The workshop was convened to prepare a report for submission to the U.S. Geodynamics Committee in response to one of the committee's initial priorities in the U.S. program for the Geodynamics Project: to investigate the contribution that could be made by land drilling to resolve major problems of geodynamics. The report recommends a continental drilling program calling for an extensive application of short holes (30–300 m) and the selective application of a few intermediate to deep holes (300–9000 m).
