By National Research Council, Division on Earth and Life Studies, Board on Earth Sciences and Resources, Technology, and Resource Assessments to Inform Energy Policy Committee on Coal Research

Coal will proceed to supply a massive section of strength specifications within the usa for no less than the following a number of a long time. it really is crucial that actual info describing the quantity, situation, and caliber of the coal assets and reserves be on hand to meet strength wishes. it's also very important that the USA extract its coal assets successfully, adequately, and in an environmentally liable demeanour. A renewed specialise in federal help for coal-related examine, coordinated throughout businesses and with the energetic participation of the states and business region, is a severe aspect for every of those requisites. "Coal" specializes in the study and improvement wishes and priorities within the components of coal source and reserve exams, coal mining and processing, transportation of coal and coal items, and coal usage.
