Hydrate Ridge is an important observatory site to define the temporal evolution of methane hydrate systems in response to seismic events, to determine material fluxes from the seafloor and impacts on overlying ocean chemistry, and to understand biogeochemical coupling associated with gas hydrate formation and disassociation.
