Bull about climate warming. It takes centuries for warmth to reach ocean bottoms and then there is the pressure! PV and T? Boyle?
Useful, but ignores abiotic oil theory, that CH4 comes from earth's interior as with all planets. Thus they may be underestimating the amounts! It is clear from the article as at 2011, that oil companies are very familiar with clathrates as a problem with their production of oil etc. Useful further sources therein.
One link from the above has been censored for mention of clathrates etc! Cleaner was not thorough enough?
useful but cluttered with climate hysteria.
At high temperature, hydrocarbon fuels break into hydrogen and carbon. Such technique could be extra-useful if the carbon forms nanotube structures. In collaboration with Dr. Saha's research group, Gautam is trying to compute the carbon nanotube production rate in such a process. This project focuses on producing hydrogen from hydrocarbon without generating the greenhouse gases. Further studies will include the possibility of using solar energy in the proposed hydrogen generation. In collaboration with Dr. Pala, both solar-thermal as well as solar-photoelectrochemical routes are now being investigated.
Possibly the presence of diamond and buckyballs would have been the pursuit of the UK research vessel sent to Aceh in 2005? Results not published!
It seems that no research is possible, except in a laboratory that does not publish its results, ie government controlled. Release of the results would be only to the oil companies associated with that government. And to the navy, including allied navies? Therefore it is a known unknown or entirely impossible to ascertain without direct intelligence, which is clearly unlikely.
Consequently, those who encounter clathrates may find surprizes! The Aceh scenario, where USSN was damaged by the unexpected size of either explosion or expansion of gases, still holds. Reference has been made on the web to Bush Jr removing certain scientific findings from the web. Were these the clathrates research previously published?
