The most challenging and intriguing questions regarding hydrates concern how hydrates form, dissociate, and are inhibited with time. The previous chapter provides the foundation required to understand these time-dependent processes. Time-dependent hydrate phenomena are substantially more challenging than timeindependent phenomena of structure and thermodynamics. One can expect a decrease in accuracy of time-dependent measurements and models by at least one order of magnitude relative to their thermodynamic counterparts, as found in Chapters 4 through 6.
