Coal Geology covers all aspects of coal geology in one volume,bridging the gap between the academic aspects and the practicalrole of geology in the coal industry. The object of the bookis to provide the reader with a with a description of the originsof coal together with the physical and chemical properties of coaland coal petrology before proceeding to cover all areas ofcoal exploration, production and use. Bridges the gap between academic aspects of coal geology andthe practical role of geology in the coal industry Examines historical and stratigraphical geology, together withmining, environmental issues, geophysics and hydrogeology and themarketing of coal Defines worldwide coal resource classifications and methods ofcalculation Addresses the alternative uses of coal as a source of energy,together with the environmental implications of coalusage Includes improved illustrations including a colour section Offers a global approach covering expanding fields inAmerica, China and India The truly global approach, drawn from the internationalexperiences of the author, recognizes the growing role of coal usein emerging markets.

Plant Life of Kentucky

An Illustrated Guide to the Vascular Flora

Plant Life of Kentucky is the first comprehensive guide to all the ferns, flowering herbs, and woody plants of the state. This long-awaited work provides identification keys for Kentucky's 2,600 native and naturalized vascular plants, with notes on wildlife/human uses, poisonous plants, and medicinal herbs. The common name, flowering period, habitat, distribution, rarity, and wetland status are given for each species, and about 80 percent are illustrated with line drawings. The inclusion of 250 additional species from outside the state (these species are "to be expected" in Kentucky) broadens the regional coverage, and most plants occurring from northern Alabama to southern Ohio to the Mississippi River (an area of wide similarity in flora) are examined, including nearly all the plants of western and central Tennessee. The author also describes prehistoric and historical changes in the flora, natural regions and plant communities, significant botanists, current threats to plant life, and a plan for future studies. Plant Life of Kentucky is intended as a research tool for professionals in biology and related fields, and as a resource for students, amateur naturalists, and others interested in understanding and preserving our rich botanical heritage.

Modern American Coal Mining: Methods and Applications covers a full range of coal mining and coal industry topics, with chapters written by leading coal mining industry professionals and academicians. Highlights from the book include coal resources and distribution, mine design, advances in strata control and power systems, improvements in surface mining, ventilation to reduce fires and explosions, drilling and blasting, staffing requirement ratios, management and preplanning, and coal preparation and reclamation. The text is enhanced with 11 case studies that are representative of underground and surface mines in the United States. Narrative descriptions and appropriate mine plans are presented, with attention given to unique features and situations that are addressed through mine design and construction. A useful glossary is included, as are many examples, figures, equations and tables, to make the text even more useful.
