To return to the positioning of Methane Hydrate deposits on the seafloors, it is significant to note that the areas of volcanic and earthquake activity on the Earth that correspond most prominently to those volcanic features of Mars are the areas which contain the largest Gas hydrate deposits on the Ocean margins. It is also interesting that these areas lie in and around the areas which my original Pre-Cambrian shield reconstruction suggested were; 1: the point of an impact and entry point of an object - the Indian plate and the Himalayan plateau, and 2: the antipode of this entry point, central America, from which point the tectonic movement of my expansion model begins with the three extensional faults. This further suggests a continuity of crustal movement common to both worlds.

The original entry point and its antipode, as epicentres of volcanic activity increased by global warming, are most likely to be the locations of major Methane Hydrate releases in the future, which suggests that, as a crossover between the meteorology and tectonics of the Earth, they are actually an essential element of the overall sequence and a 'driver' of tectonic activity. By shifting tectonic activity into a higher gear their release becomes an important part of the contraction stage.
