Abstract
This report summarizes the discussions, conclusions, and recommendations of the Magma/Hydrothermal Drilling and Instrumentation Workshop, which was held in Albuquerque, NM, May 31-June 2, 1978. The purpose of the workshop was to define potential drilling environments and to assess the present state-of-the-art in drilling and instrumentation technology for a drill hole that would penetrate through deep hydrothermal systems and into a magma body. This effort is envisioned as a portion of a larger program of continental drilling for scientific purposes, which has been proposed by the U.S. Geodynamics Committee of the National Academy of Sciences. For the purposes of the workshop, three working groups were organized as follows: Drilling Location and Environment, Drilling and Completion Technology, and Loging and Instrumentation Technology.
