In this work we show an application of geographical information system for integrating bathymetric and other dataset to study gas hydrates reservoir along the South Shetland Margin (Antarctic Peninsula). The main goal of this project was to map the regional distribution of gas hydrates reservoir. In this area, an integrated approach has pointed out the presence of gas hydrates reservoir. The available geophysical information are the following: Multibeam data, seismic images, 2D and 3D velocity and porosity models, 2D and 3D gas phase concentrations, pore pressure information, chirp images, gravity core analysis and CTD data. This integrated approach has allowed us to obtained regional information, such as geothermal gradient, by correlating all available data and obtaining 3D information distribution.

Abstract

In this work we show an application of geographical information system for integrating bathymetric and other dataset to study gas hydrates reservoir along the South Shetland Margin (Antarctic Peninsula). The main goal of this project was to map the regional distribution of gas hydrates reservoir. In this area, an integrated approach has pointed out the presence of gas hydrates reservoir. The available geophysical information are the following: Multibeam data, seismic images, 2D and 3D velocity and porosity models, 2D and 3D gas phase concentrations, pore pressure information, chirp images, gravity core analysis and CTD data. This integrated approach has allowed us to obtained regional information, such as geothermal gradient, by correlating all available data and obtaining 3D information distribution.
