The present volume aims at providing a history of development of petrological studies of coal in India. It provides petrological information of Gondwana coal from the principal coal fields in India, as also Creta­ceous coal and Tertiary lignites. Reference is also made to fluorescence studies as an important tool in maceral identification. A detailed biblio­graphic list on coal petrology is furnished for the use of those interested in pursuing studies on coal. It thus forms a handy compendium of the petrologic characteristics of coal deposits of India, authored by one of the pioneer in the field of coal petrology in the country. Contents 1. General introduction. 2. Coal. 3. Coal petrography. 4. Lignite petrology. 5. Techniques of micro section preparation. 6. Coal and lignite deposits of India. 7. Petrology of Gondwana coals. 8. Cretaceous coal. 9. Petrology of tertiary and other lignites. 9. Petrology of tertiary and other lignites. 10. Petrology of tertiary coals. 11. Fluorescence studies of micro constituents of coal and lignite. 12. Petrology of natural coke of Jharia and Raniganj coalfields. 13. Correlation of coal seams by coal petrography. 14. Palaeodepth and palaeotemperature estimation by coal petrography. 15. Coking characteristics of coal. 16. Problems of coal industry. 17. Coal bed methane potential. 18. Classification. 19.
