Project

Building a Thole-Type Model (TTM) of Methane Hydrate

Description

Jiarong’s project will be to build a Thole-Type Model (TTM) of methane hydrate. Using this model, researchers can study methane's behavior in the presence of water, along with many other types of experiments depending on the parameters. Because methane is also an environmentally potent gas, giving researchers the ability to study methane through these environmental friendly computer models will greatly reduce the risk of emissions.
