Interpretations of depositional setting based on the sedimentary relationships of coal seams must often be tentative, and the character of the coal itself can sometimes provide important additional information (see Chapter 8). Measurement of Geological Sections Locations of representati ve stratigraphic sections for detailed measurement are best selected after areal mapping is almost completed; consider accessibility as well as the quality and extent of exposure. Measurement of section by tape traverse along lines determined by compass bearings is the most widespread and useful technique wherever sediment variation is rapid and detailed description is necessary.

Plan operations in the time framework of the project as a whole and allow ample time with pessimistic assumptions with respect to difficulties and days lost-time left over from your estimate will be fully utilized in tidying up at the end.

It is better to await laboratorybased age determinations than to guess from similarities with other areas. ). It is also worth remembering that with the exception of some chemically precipitated units and volcanic ash layers, time horizons do not coincide with lithologic contacts, although they may appear to do so in terms of temporal resolution capability. Because sedimentary facies shift position during transgression or regression, contacts between these units will be time transgressive, with the angle between time lines and lithologic contacts reflecting the rate of transgression.
