|An image of part of the 10-3/4" casing string as it falls into the reentry cone at Hole 1150C. The casing string apparently failed in several places because we later found other joints of casing on the seafloor next to the reentry cone.|
The Leg 186 Co-Chiefs, Selwyn Sacks and Kiyoshi Suyehiro, with a seismometer in the background (the
silver canister). The seismometer is one of four instruments (a strainmeter, two
seismometers, and a tiltmeter) that are part of the borehole instrument string
being installed in Hole 1150D. The photo was taken as the instrument string was
being lowered into the moonpool.
The successful installation of the instruments in Hole 1150D was completed on July 28.
