392 pages



SEG geophysical developments series; no.14


This collection of 22 scientific papers addresses a variety of issues in geophysical characterization of gas hydrates in general sections on seismic imaging, geophysical imaging, borehole studies, and laboratory studies. A sampling of specific topics includes: geophysical exploration techniques and methods for gas hydrates, seismic indicators of natural gas hydrate and underlying free gas, vertical seismic profiles, marine controlled-source electromagnetic and the assessment of seafloor gas hydrates, infrared imaging, evaluation using borehole logs, and a resonant column study of the seismic properties of methane-hydrate-bearing sand. The book is extensively illustrated. Editors are Riedel (earth and ocean sciences, U. of Victoria, Canada), Willoughby (marine geophysics, U. of Toronto, Canada), and Chopra (chief geophysicist, Arcis Corporation, Canada.
