Petroleum Organic Geochemistry Group (POGG) Home
The Petroleum Organic Geochemistry Group at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution focuses on using a variety of carbon containing compounds to understand processes which have affected petroleum basins and sediment-covered hydrothermal vent areas. A particular focus of the group is gas. Gas formation and migration processes strongly affect subsurface fluid flow which ultimately determines where and how much gas is available to drive geological processes and as an energy resource.
