Abstract

A great deal of material is present in the literature, both very recent and extending back for a considerable period of time dealing with the depositional models for coals and coal seams. There is some work on the coals themselves trying to use them as indicators of various depositional environments. This field has not been exhausted and much work needs to be done. One area that could profitably be pursued would be the relationships between coal type, the mode of occurrence of some forms of sulfur and depositional environment. This could have direct practical application. Many other interesting areas exist such as the environments associated with dull coal as opposed to bright coal or can-nel or boghead coals.
