Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A Fortran IV computer program which displays detailed coal seam data is described. The graphic log consists of a lithological column displaying codes for coal and rock descriptions, with corresponding thickness, elevation, and depth values and associated contact relationships. A structure/qualifier column appears to the right of the lithology column wherein predetermined grain-size offsets for coal and non-coal units are displayed. Coal sample nubers and widths, together with certain quality parameters, are listed adjacent to the stratigraphic and structure/qualifier columns. A comment field is provided to the right of this information.-Authors
