B038:
Hydrate bearing sediments: characterization, modeling and geomechanical implications





Session ID#: 25090

Session Description:
Each year we wittness impressive progress made by the active gloabl research community in better characterizing and quantifying the  mechanical behavior of hydrate bearing sediments. This session intends to serve as a forum for fostering idea exchanges and collaborations.    Researchers from various disciplines are invited to present their progress on a wide spectrum of topics  ranging from  experiments and modeling of the mechanical and hydrodynamic behavior of hydrate bearing sediments, sample preparation methods and characterization of hydrate accumulation habits, impacts of hydrate dissociation on sediments properties and stability, in-situ characterization, gas production estimates,  and case studies.
