In Pennsylvania, the Allegheny Formation includes rocks from the base of the Brooksville Coal to the top of the Upper Freeport Coal, and was defined to include all economically significant coals in the upper Pennsylvanian sequence.

It is the intent of this course to deal with the very broad aspects of coal petrology. In the process of doing this, the authors intend to point out many of the areas in which the science has been applied to geological and various production problems and also to suggest some areas where future work may be of value.

Abstract. Coal will be a major energy source in the United States and in many other countries well into the 21st century. Although coal is composed predominantly of organic matter, inorganic constituents in coal commonly attract more attention and can ultimately determine how the coal will be by: Coal petrography Part 2: Maceral analysis 1 SCOPE This Standard sets out a procedure for the maceral analysis of coal, aimed at obtaining the proportion of each maceral occurring within a coal, expressed as a volume percentage.

It covers coals of all ranks. The classification of .A blind-thrust-ridge model is proposed to explain the lack of coarse clastic material in the vast minable Upper Freeport coal bed (UF).

This coal bed contains only fine elastic partings and is overlain by regionally extensive, closely spaced channel-belt deposits in the Upper Potomac coal field of the Appalachian basin.

A blind-thrust ridge may have formed a sediment trap and prevented c.
