    Coal Deposition in an Anastomosing‐Fluvial System: The Pennsylvanian Cumberland Group South of Joggins, Nova Scotia, Canada Book Editor(s): R. A. Rahmani. Search for more papers by this author. The lack of thick coal seams is attributed to low water‐tables and to frequent progradation of crevasse‐splays over swamps, as a result of. Geometry of coal beds in this setting vary from dendritic, elongate, lens, and lenticular along depositional dip (Flores, ). Coal adjacent to channels that are thin and or contain splits, suggests contemporaneous channel and peat development (McCabe, ).

    the present, coal is one of the world’s major sources of power generation. Native Americans have been using coal since the early s for cooking and heating, but it was not utilized to its fullest extent until the start of the Industrial Revolution in the s when electricity became a necessity (Coal's Past, Present, and Future, ). A test to explain the continuity and thickness of mineable coal seams in the northern Appalachian Plateau in terms of the Allegheny deltaic model has shown that factors other than deltaic setting (e.g. upper and lower delta plain), control the mechanisms of thickness variation and distribution of mineable seams.

E.C. Dapples, M.E. Hopkins (Eds.), Environments of Coal Deposition. Abstract. In the preceding chapters coal components have been classified on the basis of physical, chemical and genetic relationships. In the following discussion these will be employed in a filtering process that is designed to detect the signatures left behind by depositional environments in the form of a distinctive coal facies.

At best, coal type only represents to what degree the original plant components were degraded, but not how they were degraded. To infer other parameters such as depositional environment, tectonic setting or climate, other data (e.g. distribution of surrounding sediment types, palynology, etc.) must be collected and assessed.

The table below includes specific environments where various types of sediments are deposited and common rocks, structures, and fossils that aid in deducing the depositional environment from examining a sedimentary rock outcrop.

Although this is not a complete list, it is a good introduction to depositional environments. Continental; Transitional.

The identified depositional phasescommenced with subglacial, glaciofluvial and glaciolacustrine settings, with associated Gilbert-type deltas. These are followed by meandering and minor braided fluvial settings, characterized by laterally and vertically highly variable lithofacies, in which the main coal-bearing strata were formed.

depositional environments of surrounding and adjacent strata may also affect coal characteristics by simultaneously influencing coal continuity, thickness, geometry, distribution, and quality (Flores, ).

This chapter will discuss relationships between coal properties and the depositional environments of peat and surrounding strata. The 12 coal channel samples were obtained from 5 coal beds that span about m or ft of stratigraphic section in the Pocahontas and New River Formations of Early Pennsylvanian age.

Coal seams D and E belong to the Muara Enim Formation in South Sumatra Basin, which includes to the Middle Miocene to Late Miocene. The research is located at the Air Laya coal mines, PTBA, Tanjung Enim, South Suma- tra. The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics of coal and coal depositional environments of Seam D (Merapi) and Seam.

Some achievements of coal petrology, coal-bearing formations, coal basins, coal depositional environments, coal metamorphism, distributions of minor elements in coal, and the utilization of coal were made, and this greatly enriched the study content of coal geology.

Depositional systems: Fluvial, Deltaic, and Other Peat, the precursor of coal, accumulates in many environments ranging from subarctic.Coal exploration in shallow lacustrine sequences similar to those described here must take into account that the spread of coal-forming environments and maxima of coal deposition are usually coincident with lake expansions and retraction or shifting of the terminal fluvial zones interrelated with the lacustrine areas.
