Detailed Description

The USGS Gas Hydrates Project develops and tests new tools to address the critical knowledge gaps identified as scientists analyze hydrate-bearing pressure cores recovered during field programs. The chamber is designed to operate at the high effective stresses that the research community now recognizes will likely be required for extracting gas hydrate from deepwater marine gas hydrate systems.
