About this book

Seabed fluid flow involves the flow of gases and liquids through the sea bed. Such fluids have been found to leak through the seabed into the marine environment in seas and oceans around the world - from the coasts to deep ocean trenches. This geological phenomenon has widespread implications for the sub-seabed, seabed, and marine environments. Seabed fluid flow affects seabed morphology, mineralization, and benthic ecology. Natural fluid emissions also have a significant impact on the composition of the oceans and atmosphere; and gas hydrates and hydrothermal minerals are potential future resources.

This book describes seabed fluid flow features and processes, and demonstrates their importance to human activities and natural environments.

Media reviews
'I found the book to have significant breadth and detail, and believe it will be of use to scientists in both academia and industry.' Geofluids 'If you ask yourself 'Do I need the update if I have the 1988 version of the book?' the answer is yes. While the excellent introduction to pockmarks of the North Sea is retained from the previous book, Seabed Fluid Flow gives more room to other seep structures and their global distribution, such as mud volcanoes and hydrate systems. ... this book provides an excellent overview of submarine seepage phenomena, and stimulates ongoing scientific discussions needed to understand these systems. We recommend Seabed Fluid Flow to scientists and other professionals, but certainly also to students specializing in fluid-flow related topics.' Oceanography
