• Gas Hydrates and Seafloor Methane during Past and Future Global Climate Change.
• Mud Volcanoes: Structure, Plumbing, Chemistry and Triggering-Mechanisms.
• Magma-Related Hydrocarbon Systems: Past and Present Cases.
• The Complex Interplay of Methane in Marine Sedimentary Basins and Ice in Polar Regions.
• How much Gas exists in Marine Sediment and how can this be constrained.
• The Diversity of Chemosynthetic Organisms at Gas Seeps and the potential need for Habitat Protection.
• Formation and Modification of Carbonate and other Minerals associated with Gas Seepage.
• Offshore Gas Reservoirs as a Resource, Repository or Both.
Gas Hydrate Geohazards and their Impact on Foundation Design, Pipelines and Subsea Cables.
