The Gordon Research Seminar on Natural Gas Hydrate Systems is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
Gas hydrates present a myriad of challenges to energy production, geohazards, and as an agent of climate change. Our understanding of these complex systems is dependent on the continuous integration of field observations, lab investigations, and model predictions. The 2018 Seminar will focus on innovations linking each of these focus areas to advance our knowledge of gas hydrate behavior from molecular to field-scales. More specifically, this seminar will explore next generation tools and methods developed and implemented for gas hydrate detection, characterization, monitoring, and modeling from the microstructure to reservoir scales.
Attendees at the Seminar are strongly encouraged to register for the companion Gordon Research Conference, where the connection between laboratory, modeling and field research will be further explored.
