Deep Ocean Drilling Meeting

Participants in a high-level policy meeting on the deep ocean drilling proposal held last week in Washington, D.C., reported general accord for proceeding with the Explorer drilling program.

The extent of it, they said, would probably be larger than a program of drilling only on the passive continental margins but smaller than the extensive program called for in the Future of Scientific Ocean Drilling report to the Joint Oceanographic Institutions Deep Earth Sampling executive committee.
