Energies Special Issue "Natural Gas Hydrate 2011" closing up - 18 papers published

We are pleased to announce that the special issue "Natural Gas Hydrate 2011" has been successfully closed. 18 papers have been published in this special issue. It is preceded by another successful issue on the same topic published in 2010. 

Dr. Richard B. Coffin, the Guest Editor, says "Gas hydrates are recognized as an opportunity for new energy, a potential contribution to climate change, and a significant factor in coastal stability. To develop a thorough understanding of these topics integration of geophysics, geology, biology and geochemistry in field and laboratory research is required. Over the past years Energies publications have presented science on key issues lead by world leaders in gas hydrate research".

A new special issue on this topic is planned to be set up soon for the year 2013, aiming to further encourage scholars in this field to share their research results in a timely way.
