An 11 square mile block of the Pittsburgh Coal of relatively uniform thickness, ash content, sulfur contenet and roof rock was studied in detail in Southwestern Pennsylvania. The objective of this study was to determine the variability and patterns of variability in coal thickness, ash content and sulbur content and to determine the relationship between these patterns and the paleotopography of the original surface of the coal swamp. Linear correlations between these variables were statistically evaluated.
