Information - SSP16 Focused fluid flow systems in continental margins
Understanding focused fluid flow is highly relevant for (1) filling and leakage of hydrocarbon reservoirs, (2) quantification of the input of greenhouse gases from the geosphere to the hydrosphere and atmosphere, and (3) devising policies of CO2 sequestration and protection of chemosynthetic ecosystems. Focused fluid flow expresses itself through a wide range of geological phenomena such as mud volcanoes, pockmarks, pipe structures, gas hydrates, and hydrothermal vent systems. Therefore development of comprehensive geodynamic models in this field requires an inter-disciplinary effort that can provide both the necessary observations and theoretical models.
To this session we invite geologists, geophysicists, geochemists and physical modellers working on mapping and modeling of focused fluid flow systems and their effects. The session should result in cross-fertilization of ideas and leading edge research, and will hopefully result in some vigorous discussions.
