Interests: simulation analysis of physical parameters of natural gas hydrate; experimental technology of natural gas hydrate production; gas hydrate reservoir monitoring
As a clean energy with huge reserve potential, considerable interest has been generated in the exploration, discovery, and exploitation of natural gas hydrates. In recent decades, the investigation of and research on natural gas hydrate have greatly advanced in terms of natural geological characteristics, resource potential assessment, and exploration and production technology. However, the understanding of the mode and microscopic distribution of hydrate reservoirs remains unclear, and the petrophysical properties and response mechanism of the reservoir are not yet well understood. In view of the phase changes of hydrates under temperature and pressure variations, natural gas hydrate formation experimentation and logging while drilling yield petrophysical properties and borehole geophysical responses of hydrates reservoirs. This Special Issue aims to share relevant scientific research on the petrophysical properties and geophysical exploration of hydrate reservoirs and encourages the publication of the latest developments that contribute to the knowledge of hydrate reservoirs.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
