N1 - Funding Information: The project was made possible through the consistent support of the US National Science Foundation and the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program, and because of the extensive efforts of project partners on several continents. The logistical and operational complexity of the project, which involved drilling in very deep water in a remote site in central Africa, required an unusual level of cooperation and communication between various service providers and contractors. The University of Rhode Island provided oversight as the project general contractor; Seacore Ltd. (now Fugro-Seacore) offered an outstanding team of drillers for the program; ADPS Ltd. provided a superb marine crew qualified to operate a dynamically-positioned drilling vessel; DOSECC Inc. procured the portable dynamic positioning system and provided the drilling tools and outstanding support personnel; Malawi Lake Services provided the drilling vessel and shipyard support; and Lengeek Vessel Engineering redesigned and, through a lengthy and difficult procedure, remodeled the Viphya barge into a self-contained, dynamically-positioned drilling platform. Throughout the program the Malawi Geological Survey provided logistical and planning assistance. Following the drilling field program LacCore, the primary US core repository for lake sediment cores, provided extensive assistance with core processing and archiving.
