Project Description

Gas hydrates — methane gas molecules trapped within an ice-like cage of solid water — occur worldwide within sediments on continental slopes. Dr. Ann Cook uses analytical data like geophysical well logs, seismic data, and sediment cores along with mathematical models to investigate these natural gas hydrates. Study of gas hydrates is critical for several reasons. The methane contained within them could be a commercial energy resource in the future, the “melting of gas hydrate may trigger submarine landslides or could affect petroleum drilling and production, and they may play a key role in climate change by serving as a source or sink for atmospheric methane.
