Ocean Drilling Program B-Roll Footage Log Sheet

00:36:00 seconds black

Animation of drilling process, seafloor tectonics and JOIDES Resolution (pronounced "joy-dees")

42:18Moon Pool area, a hole in the center of the ship where the drill pipe is deployed from the rig floor to the seafloor.

53:00 Close-up of drill bit

1:00:00 Red lines are sound waves coming from the sound beacon that sits next to the hole on the seafloor. This is part of the dynamic positioning system. A re-entry cone is sometimes placed over the hole enabling the drill pipe to re-enter the hole.

1:17:21 Seafloor subduction

1:36:03 The JOIDES Resolution, drill pipe extended to the seafloor, black smokers rising from the seafloor

1:52:04 Demonstration of dynamic positioning system aboard the ship. 12 thrusters alongside the hull enable the ship to maintain position while drilling.

2:00:00 Continental spreading

Aerial footage of the JOIDES Resolution

Ship at sea. Land in background is the southeastern shore of Greenland.
