...K. J. Murata; R. C. Erd Abstract Based on chemical, spectrographic and X-ray analyses, 34 samples from the experimental Mohole consist of variable proportions of calcite (0-60 percent), biogenic opal (0-50 percent), and normal lithogenous matter (14-97 percent) with an average of 20, 32, and 48...

... Abstract In the late 1950s, when the competition was strong among oceanographic institutions, an idea arose that was larger than any of them could handle alone. This was the concept of drilling a hole through the crust of the earth to the mantle that came to be called the “Mohole Project...

...Donald M. Taylor ABSTRACT Project Mohole is this country’s scientific effort to explore and sample all layers of the earth’s crust and the underlying mantle. The need for such a project is basic: the mantle comprises about 84 per cent of the earth’s volume. When geologists and geophysicists know...
