Geophysical characterisation of gas hydrate systems on the southern Hikurangi Margin of New Zealand

A seminar by Francesco Turco, Department of Geology

Francesco has combined a range of geophysical data and theoretical models to identify, map and quantitatively characterise gas hydrate deposits and cold seeps on the southern Hikurangi Margin. Multi-channel seismic (MCS) data and methods form a large part of the basis of the studies presented in this thesis. Hydroacoustic data were also used to characterise the water column and to estimate methane fluxes from gas seeps related to the gas hydrate systems.
