Alternatively, an undersea earthquake today, say off the Blake Ridge or the coast of
Japan or California might loosen and cause some of the sediment to slide down the
ridge or slump, exposing the hydrate layer to the warmer water. That in turn could
cause a chain reaction of events, leading to the release of massive quantities of
methane.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27375240



Another possibility is drilling and other activities related to exploration and
recovery of methane hydrates as an energy resource. The hydrates tend to occur in
the pores of sediment and help to bind it together. Attempting to remove the
hydrates may cause the sediment to collapse and release the hydrates. So, it may not
take thousands of years to warm the ocean and the sediments enough to cause
massive releases, only lots of drilling rigs.
