P067 EVIDENCES OF SLOPE INSTABILITY CAUSED BY GAS HYDRATE DISSOCIATION OFFSORE ANTARCTIC PENINSULA Abstract 1 The global warming produces over part of Antarctic ice-cap amplified signals; this is especially the case of the transition zone between the Antarctic Peninsula and the adjacent Drake passage. The presence of a diffused and discontinuous BSR and of a relevant gas hydrate reservoir on the South Shetland margin designates this area as a crucial observatory with respect to the climatic change. We show here the preliminary results obtained last year in the investigated area in the frame of the Progetto Nazionale di Ricerche in
