...Gordon H. Wood, Jr.; J. Peter Trexler; Harold H. Arndt; Andy Yelenosky; Julian Soren ABSTRACT The Pottsville formation of Pennsylvanian age has been divided into three lithologic units in the Southern anthracite field as a result of detailed mapping and stratigraphic studies. It is redescribed...

...James C. Hower; Alan Davis Abstract The anisotropy of the coal maceral vitrinite was analyzed in relation to the tectonic setting of a coal from the Southern Anthracite Field in Pennsylvania. For the coal studied, the maximum-intermediate reflectance plane essentially paralleled the axial plane...

... are the Goyllarisquizga, Jatunhuasi, Oyón, and the “Northern Anthracitefields. The Goyllarisquizga field, in constant production since 1903, has yielded at least 8,800,000 metric tons of bituminous coal, which has been used to make metallurgical coke for the Cerro de Pasco Corporation’s smelter in La Oroya. The coal...

... temperature of surface exhaust vents is ~65 °C, and its rate of movement is nearly unperceivable. In light of the changing parameters of the fire, Centralia continues to provide an interesting environment in which to study the effects of a subsurface anthracite coal fire on the landscape. This field trip...

The prolific coal, oil, and natural gas fields of Pennsylvania are the direct result of thermal maturation of once deeply buried organic-rich sediment. Understanding how, why, and where thermal maturation occurred in the Appalachian Basin...
