Coal Geology, second edition, offers a thoroughly revised andupdated edition of this popular book which provides a comprehensiveoverview of the field of coal geology. 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. With fully revised coverage of the latestmodelling techniques, environmental legislation, equipment andrecording methods, the second edition offers a truly invaluableresource for anyone studying, researching or working in the fieldof coal geology, geotechnical and mining engineering andenvironmental science.

Contains background information on the chemical and physical properties of coal--its nature, origins, various types and classification on a global basis. Highlights currently known geographical distribution of coals, their ages, recent production figures and major exporter countries. Essential exploration techniques and procedures, together with standards of geological practice, are described. The geologist's role in data collection, sampling, the calculation of resources/reserves, geotechnical studies as well as the preparation of geological reports are examined.

Coal geology is the study of a field that concentrates on the origin, occurring relationships and geological characteristics of coal and similarly treated rocks. This field is also involved in the study of coal-derived gases, fluids, both naturally occurring and man-made solid coal by-products. This book presents state-of-the art research from around the world.

Naturally burning coal fires and those ignited by human activities receive little attention from the media compared to other environmental hazards, but their study is gaining ground. Here, the world's leading experts present their research findings covering topics such as the gases generated in underground coal fires, the origin of gas-vent minerals and land-cover changes due to coal fires.
