1. A theoretical analysis of the climatic destabilization processes of methane hydrates in oceanic basins.
2. A theoretical analysis and prognosis of the potential seismic respons of methane hydrase horizons below the seafloor.
3. A contribution to an experimental investigation of shallow hydrate horizons: experimental design, data interpretation and comparison with the theoretical analyses.
