MRI measurements of hydrate thickness growth have been measured and this phenomenon applied to advanced CO2 ocean dissolution technology. CO2 droplets dissolve during the process of sinking from their release point into deep ocean, by forming fine hydrate particles inside CO2 droplets before the droplets are released from a towed pipe on a moving ship. This results in a sufficiently long sequestration period from the atmosphere and further reduces biological impact. The increasing rate of hydrate film thickness in forming hydrate particles was measured by an ultrahigh-pressure magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique.
