The Earth Institute at Columbia University posted an informal report on the results of the Colorado Plateau Coring Project's 1706 foot deep corehole and a second, 830 foot deep hole continuously cored last fall in Petrified Forest National Park. The story includes a slide show of the geology and the round-the-clock drilling operation. The goal is to examine late Triassic environments.
