      Santamarina, J. Carlos; Dai, Sheng; Terzariol, Marco; Jang, J.; Waite, William F.; Winters, William J.; Nagao, Jiro; Yoneda, Jun; Konno, Yoshihiro; Fujii, Tetsuya; Suzuki, K. (Elsevier, 2015-03-01)
      Natural hydrate-bearing sediments from the Nankai Trough, offshore Japan, were studied using the Pressure Core Characterization Tools (PCCTs) to obtain geomechanical, hydrological, electrical, and biological properties ...
    • Physical properties of hydrate-bearing sediments 

      Waite, William F.; Santamarina, J. Carlos; Cortes, Douglas D.; Dugan, Brandon; Espinoza, D. N.; Germaine, J.; Jang, J.; Jung, J. W.; Kneafsey, Timothy J.; Shin, H.; Soga, K.; Winters, William J.; Yun, Tae Sup (American Geophysical Union, 2009-12-31)
      Methane gas hydrates, crystalline inclusion compounds formed from methane and water, are found in marine continental margin and permafrost sediments worldwide. This article reviews the current understanding of phenomena ...
    • Volume change associated with formation and dissociation of hydrate in sediment 

      Lee, J. Y.; Santamarina, J. Carlos; Ruppel, Carolyn D. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-03-11)
      Gas hydrate formation and dissociation in sediments are accompanied by changes in the bulk volume of the sediment and can lead to changes in sediment properties, loss of integrity for boreholes, and possibly regional ...
