Michael Max 

PhD. Max  Michael
Michael Max, PhD attended the University of Wisconsin at Madison BsC, the University of Wyoming MSc, and Trinity College, Dublin PhD and has been employed as a geologist since 1969, beginning with the Geological Survey of Ireland. Active in marine geology and geophysics since 1974, he became fascinated by natural gas hydrate beginning in 1988 while employed at the Naval Research Laboratory and later at the NATO undersea research centre in La Spezia, Italy. From 1999 until 2010 he was the CEO and Chief of Research of a small R and D company investigating the industrial aspects of gas hydrate for seawater desalination, industrial water treatment and gas separation. Dr. Max is currently active mainly in Hydrate Energy International LLC and is an Adjunct Professor in the Schools of Earth Sciences at University College Dublin, Ireland. This is the third book on natural gas hydrate he has authored or co-authored, and he has many publications, including patents publication list available at hydrate-energy.com. Dr. Max and HEI are currently engaged in developing new technology that is intended to dramatically reduce the cost of development of natural gas hydrate as a gas resource.

William P. Dillon
William P. Dillon received a BS from Bates College, an MS from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and PhD from the University of Rhode Island, Graduate School of Oceanography. He left a faculty position at San Jose State University, California, to join the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) as a research geologist in 1971, and was Chief of the USGS Branch of Atlantic Marine Geology from 1982-1986. He has published more than 150 articles on marine geology. He has received the U.S. Department of Interior, Meritorious Service Award and Distinguished Service Award, the highest civilian award of the Department of the Interior, and is a Fellow of the Geological Society of America. Dillon’s primary research topics have been gas hydrate in the marine environment, development of continental margins and the tectonics of the Caribbean. Among other research efforts, he was project chief of the U.S. Geological Survey’s gas hydrate research program from 1989 to his retirement in 2002. This major project encompassed geophysical studies at sea and in Arctic wells, geochemical research, and laboratory analyses of the physical characteristics of gas hydrate.
