Seabed pockmarks and subsurface fluid migration at multiple scales

A Department of Geology Seminar presented by PhD student Jasper Hoffmann

Fluid migration from deep sedimentary basins towards Earth’s surface has various implications for hydrocarbon accumulations at depth and influences slope stability, climate and ecological systems closer to the surface. I investigate gaseous and liquid fluids seeping from the seafloor which significantly change the seafloor morphology as well as, local ecological systems, and the chemical composition of the overlying ocean. Decreasing acoustic resolution with depth requires a multi-scale approach to gain a better understanding of the various fluids and migration processes involved at different depths.
