Abstract

The ratio of the thicknesses of a layer of peat and the coal bed formed from that peat has been calculated for a bituminous coal bed. The method used involves comparison of the thickness of peat eroded by a laterally migrating channel system with the thickness of coal now absent from the outcrop. The peat:coal thickness ratio calculated by this method is approximately 11:1.- Authors
