EXPERTISE
Flemings? studies of pore pressures in seafloor sediments is answering questions about submarine landslides, oil and gas migration, and methane hydrates. In technical terms, his work involves stratigraphy, basin analysis, and basin-scale fluid flow. He works closely with the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP). His current projects include the study of fluid pressure in the Nankai Accretionary Prism, analysis and modeling of hydrate systems on southern Hydrate Ridge, the study of slope stability on continental margins, and the development of a pore pressure penetrometer for ocean drilling.
