The Beltran Gas Hydrates Research Group provides experimental information relevant to thermodynamics, kinetics, morphology, growth and dissociation of gas hydrates. Although gas hydrates or aqueous clathrates make the core of our research, we love to find all kinds of creative applications for science and engineering.
