Abstract
This paper describes Bureau of Mines research to determine the feasibility of using stereoscopic slides to improve miners' ability to recognize dangerous roof and rib conditions. In comparison to conventional slides, stereoscopic slides give the viewer a better perception of certain details such as the presence of cracks and gaps in the roof rock. Data were collected from mine safety and training personnel using structured interview guides and stereoscopic slides. The overwhelming majority of those interviewed indicated that stereoscopic slides are far superior to conventional slides for portraying groundfall hazards, and that their use as a training aid for underground coal miners is quite feasible.
