Figure 5. The frequency of occurrence of gas hydrates with respect to sediment texture. Data from sea floor samples are not included. The category "mixed" refers to either the presence of gas hydrate in mixed coarse and fine sediments or to gas hydrate recovered from a zone in which both of these basic sediment textures are present, as described in the literature cited in the database (Appendix).
