Arctic and Antarctic Sea-Floor Processes and Natural Hazards

  • What is real the extent of subsea permafrost on Arctic continental shelves?
  • How to understand and evaluate the impact of Arctic methane seepage on the global climate?
  • How to quantify the role of gas hydrate systems in within and out of permafrost in marine Arctic sediments in the climate change, global carbon cycle, and in sedimentary processes including sediment mass movement and methane release?
  • Which are the sedimentary systems within glacial depositional systems favoring the accretion of unstable continental slopes?
  • Which is the glacial sedimentary model, which describes the polar depositional environments, the sedimentary processes involved and the recurring pattern of sedimentation?
