Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The microstructure of methane hydrate and of an agglomerate of ice with methane hydrate, as well as of hydrate-containing sandy rocks are examined. It is found that ice-containing even a small quantity of hydrate differs strongly from ice containing no hydrate. The melting of the hydrate-containing ice is accompanied by effervescence, bubbling at the surface and partial decrepitation of the samples.
