  • Certain gases can combine with water to form solids—gas hydrates—that are stable at high pressures and low temperatures1,2. Conditions appropriate for gas-hydrate formation exist in many marine sediments where there is a supply of methane. Seismic reflection profiles across continental margins indicate the frequent occurrence of gas hydrate within the upper few hundred metres of sea-floor sediments, overlying deeper zones containing bubbles of free gas3–9. If large volumes of methane are stored… CONTINUE READING
