Coal Systems Analysis

Coal is an important and required energy source for today's world. Current rates of world coal consumption are projected to continue at approximately the same (or greater) levels well into the twenty-first century. This collection of papers provides an introduction to the concept of coal systems analysis and contains examples of how coal systems analysis can be used to understand, characterize, and evaluate coal and coal gas resources. Coal systems analysis incorporates the various disciplines of coal geology to provide a complete characterization of the resource.

Coal Geology

Coal Geology provides a complete integrated handbook on coal and all its properties, covering the physical and chemical properties of coal as well as coal petrology. It describes the age and occurence of coal; coal sampling and analysis; coal exploration; geophysics and hydrogeology of coal and coal mining techniques.

European Coal Geology

This volume covers many aspects of European coal geology and illustrates the depth and breadth of research from sedimentological, geochemical and exploration models, to exploration drilling and economic evaluation of coal deposits, on a local and country-wide scale, as well as the environmental aspects of coal burning and disposal of CO2.
