By Glenn B. Stracher, Anupma Prakash, Ellina V. Sokol

Coal and Peat Fires: an international Perspective is a compelling choice of examine carried out by means of scientists and engineers around the globe. the 1st of 4 volumes within the assortment, Coal - Geology and Combustion, features chapters that debate the beginning of coal and coal fires; mining and use of coal; combustion and coal petrology; environmental and wellbeing and fitness affects of coal fires; combustion by-products; geochemical, geophysical, and engineering methodologies for learning coal fires; the regulate, extinguishment, and political implications of coal fires; and masses more.

  • Integrates pioneering coal-fires learn, with topical insurance of distant sensing, policymaking, and more
  • Contains 1000s of tables, graphs, and top of the range colour photographs with on-line hyperlinks to movies and multimedia presentations
  • Serves as an important consultant to the socio-economic and geo-environmental affects of coal fires
