- Lawrence Livermore Laboratory was funded by the Office of Basic Energy Sciences of the Department of Energy to support the establishment of a data and information unit on all DOE drilling activities, as a service for the entire scientific community. The effort is known as The Continental Drilling for Scientific Purposes Data Management Program. The primary concern at this time is the collection of data on basement structures and deep continental basins, thermal regimes of the crust, mineral resources, and earthquakes and faulting. Satisfactory investigation of all these topics is dependent on data from deep and, therefore, expensive holes. An information system for existing and proposed deep drilling projects should be useful both for investigations of the particular concerns noted above and for studies of the earth's crust in general. The data management program should promote the efficient use of limited funds for drilling deep holes. Given the knowledge of these deep holes, investigators may either use existing information, or propose experiments for planned holes that will - with perhaps only little extra expense compared with the cost of the hole - provide the data they need. The LLL program is intended to improve dissemination of information on scientifically interesting holes. The program is operational but still under development. Data management systems are being reviewed to ascertain the most useful system. Data are being supplied by many individuals knowledgeable about existing and planned deep holes - included among these individuals are members of the staff of the US Geological Survey. Output of data now in the system is available on request. 1 figure, 3 tables.
