AGU publishes 22 highly respected, peer-reviewed scientific journals covering research in the Earth and space sciences; Eos.org, an online news site (accompanied by a monthly magazine); and award-winning books.
Why Publish with AGU
AGU journals are supported by editors who are practicing scientists and experts in their fields, and reach a global network of Earth and space scientists. AGU also supports the fastest publication times across all Earth and space science journals, which means your research is read and cited sooner. Learn more
AGU has four fully open access journals. All other journals have an open choice option to allow authors to provide full access to their papers immediately upon publication. AGU uses Creative Commons licenses for all Open Access papers and a traditional copyright agreement for all other papers.

Factors Controlling Short‐Range Methane Migration of Gas Hydrate Accumulations in Thin Coarse‐Grained Layers
Illustration of five gas hydrate reservoirs that are (a) fractures in fine‐grained sediment, (b) a thin (and sometimes patchy) coarse‐grained layer surrounded by fine‐grained sediment, (c) a thin coarse‐grained layer (possibly connected to deep methane sources) surrounded by fine‐grained sediment, (d) a thick coarse‐grained layer connected to the base of gas hydrate stability zone (GHSZ), and (e) a thick coarse‐grained layer with connection to deep hydrocarbon reservoirs.
