Methane Hydrate Instability: A View from the Palaeogene.

T Dunkley Jones, Ruza F Ivanovic, DJ Lunt, MA Maslin, PJ Valdes, RM Flecker

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book


This book addresses a wide range of issues relating to the ways in which climate change may force geological and geomorphological hazards. The Chapters reflect an interdisciplinary field of research that is only now becoming recognized as important in the context of the likely impacts and implications of anthropogenic climate change. We hope that the book will provide a marker that reinforces the idea that anthropogenic climate change does not simply involve the atmosphere and hydrosphere, but can also elicit a response from the Earth’s crust and mantle. In this regard, we hope that it will encourage further research into those mechanisms by which climate change may drive potentially hazardous geological and geomorphological activity, and into the future ramifications for society and the economy.
