Gas hydrates: methane from the oceans?
: "A scientific expedition funded largely by the National Science Foundation , has located a vast reserve of gas hydrates off the coast of Oregon. .. Gas hydrates are a chemical compound composed of natural gases (methane) and water that occur in sediments overlain by cold, deep water. Little is known about the environmental role, or possible resource potential of this recently discovered phenomenon. .. Scientists have estimated that area could contain enough methane to supply U.S. energy needs for more than 100 years. They also found evidence suggesting that hydrates are involved in the global climate cycle, and that they can cause massive landslides. " 5:43:31 PM
