Record #166722:

Fundamental principles and applications of natural gas hydrates / E. Dendy Jr. Sloan.

Title: Fundamental principles and applications of natural gas hydrates / E. Dendy Jr. Sloan.
Author(s): Sloan, E. Dendy Jr.
Date: 2003.
In: Nature. (2003.), Vol. 426(6964) (2003)
Abstract: Describes five major applications of hydrate research, including climate change. Introduces hydrate structures and their overall properties, listing those of the three common unit crystals. Reviews evidence for climate change caused by hydrates, including Late Paleocene Thermal Maximum when dissociation of methane from hydrates is hypothesised to have caused a 4-8 °C temperature rise over 1000 years. Discusses similar 'hydrate gun hypothesis', proposed to account for significant global warming some 15,000 years BP. Notes that perhaps two thirds of Earth's fossil fuel are stored in clathrate hydrates, mostly in ocean bottom. Discusses possibilities for extracting methane from these and (far smaller) reserves in permafrost regions.
