Influence of depositional environment on type and probability of encountering coalbed discontinuities.
Am Assoc Petrol Geol Bull 1984 Dec; 68(12):1
Predictive models that characterize coalbed discontinuities enable mine operators to be better judges of the size, geometry, and influence of these features in unmined portions of the coalbed. An analysis of depositional environments in initial geologic studies of prospective mine properties will indicate the specific types of coalbed discontinuities that can be anticipated.
