The Drilling Vessel GLOMAR CHALLENGER entered the Indian Ocean while she left Darwin, Australia on January thirteen, 1972. She traveled round that Ocean in a counterclockwise type drilling seventy two holes at sixty four websites in the course of 7 cruises over all of the significant ridges and basins from the crimson Sea to the Antarctic continent. She entire her paintings there whilst she ultimately arrived at Christchurch, New Zealand on February 27, 1973. in this time approximately 30 km of seafloor was once penetrated and lots more and plenty of that fabric was once recovered and studied and is archived on the Deep Sea Drilling undertaking middle depository.

Ridge and Naturaliste Thus, except for the small region between Broken Plateau, the basins between Antarctica and Aus- tralia were totally closed to deep water either from the east or west. It is possible that this geometry could have led to major changes in the deep sea sedimentary record. The absence of an Oligocene hiatus at Site 267 may be evidence of such a change. p.

The Depth of the Ocean Floor as a Function To determine the past bathymetry of the ocean floor of Age it is necessary to establish a relation between depth and age for all portions of the ocean crust. To a first approximation the floor of the Indian Ocean can be separated into typical ocean crust and aseismic ridges (Figure 1). In this section we compare the depth versus age data for the Indian Ocean with that found in other oceans and we develop a subsidence model for the aseismic ridges.
