Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Actual travel dates: 28 Jan. 2007 to 16 Feb. 2007 for WHSC personnel. Field work was preceded by safety training in Anchorage. Assortment of activities related to acquisition of natural sediment samples with and without gas hydrate in the pore space. Well logs. Sediment and pore-content analyses in the field and home-based laboratories including: physical properties, gas and pore-water geochemistry. Summary of activities is provided in the U.S. Dept. of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory newsletter.
