Reviews

This book provides many insights on the subject of gas migration and its possible important applications such as land subsidence and prediction of earthquakes. This book opens a new scientific direction in the earth sciences that allows to diagnose the inner state of our planet and predict possible natural disasters by constructing the "gaseous portraits of the earth." -Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering This book provides a powerful conceptual basis and methodologies for understanding and predicting natural disasters and environmental hazards. -Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering Reading this book will influence the direction of scientific research and funding in the field of gas migration and earthquake prediction, create new ideas and concepts in environmental studies, and motivate many scientists and engineers toward new books on gas migration and related environmental hazards. -Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering
