Gas hydrates are a significant potential energy source occurring in ocean-floor sediments at water depths greater than 500 meters. The USGS (US Geological Survey) operates a gas hydrates laboratory on its Menlo Park campus. USGS geophysicists Laura Stern and Steve Kirby detail how they study and create gas hydrates in their super-cooled lab.
