  • Thermal conductivity of hydrate-bearing sediments 

    Cortes, Douglas D.; Martin, Ana I.; Yun, Tae Sup; Francisca, Franco M.; Santamarina, J. Carlos; Ruppel, Carolyn D. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-11-18)
    A thorough understanding of the thermal conductivity of hydrate-bearing sediments is necessary for evaluating phase transformation processes that would accompany energy production from gas hydrate deposits and for estimating ...
  • Triggering mechanism and tsunamogenic potential of the Cape Fear Slide complex, U.S. Atlantic margin 

    Hornbach, Matthew J.; Lavier, Luc L.; Ruppel, Carolyn D. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-12-28)
    Analysis of new multibeam bathymetry data and seismic Chirp data acquired over the Cape Fear Slide complex on the U.S. Atlantic margin suggests that at least 5 major submarine slides have likely occurred there within the ...
  • Tsunami hazard along the U.S. Atlantic coast 

    ten Brink, Uri S. (Elsevier B.V., 2009-03-28)
    Assessment of natural hazards typically relies on analysis of past occurrences of similar disaster events. Assessment of tsunami hazard to the Atlantic coast of the Unites States poses a scientific challenge because of the ...
  • Vertical motions of the Puerto Rico Trench and Puerto Rico and their cause 

    ten Brink, Uri S. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-06-22)
    The Puerto Rico trench exhibits great water depth, an extremely low gravity anomaly, and a tilted carbonate platform between (reconstructed) elevations of +1300 m and −4000 m. I argue that these features are manifestations ...
  • 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 ...
  • Widespread gas hydrate instability on the upper U.S. Beaufort margin 

    Phrampus, Benjamin J.; Hornbach, Matthew J.; Ruppel, Carolyn D.; Hart, Patrick E. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-12-09)
    The most climate-sensitive methane hydrate deposits occur on upper continental slopes at depths close to the minimum pressure and maximum temperature for gas hydrate stability. At these water depths, small perturbations ...
