  1. Final Project Report - Revised Version

    An over-arching goal of this research is to calibrate geophysical techniques for hydrate exploration, evaluation, and production monitoring. Extensive field data of hydrate-bearing sediments exist, but quantitative estimates of the amount and distribution of hydrates are difficult to determine. Thus, the primary project objectives were to relate seismic and acoustic velocities and attenuations to hydrate saturation and texture. The project aimed to collect seismic properties along with other measurements (e.g., complex resistivity, micro-focus x-ray computed tomography, etc.). The multiphysics dataset would enable researchers to understand not only the interaction between mineral surfaces and gas hydrates, but also how the hydratemore » formation method affects the hydrate-sediment system in terms of elastic properties.« less
