Compiling Kentucky Coal Information for the National coal Resource Data System 2010-2015

Grants and Contracts Details


This project proposes to compile and enter Kentucky coal data into the National Coal Resources Data System (NCRDS), a Federal coal data base. NCRDS provides a means by which coal thickness, coal elevation, coal quality data and stratigraphic data can be entered into relational data bases of the Kentuck Geological Survey (KGS) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) for use by the public, industry, State and Federal agencies. These data are critical for regional evaluatioins of coal resources and reserves such as those understaken by the USGS as part of the National Coal Resource Assessment (NCRA), Coal Availability study (CAS), and Coal Recoverability Study (CRS).
