The subjects covered in this bibliography include the analysis and characterization of coal refuse; various methods of handling, storing, and disposing of coal refuse; the environmental problems such as refuse drainage quality and combustion of refuse piles; the control of environmental problems; and the uses for refuse which have been investigated. The coal cleaning process itself is very closely related to the general subject area covered in this bibliography. However, the large number of publications available on coal cleaning have not been included unless they contained information that contributed significantly to the knowledge and understanding of coal refuse and its related disposal problems. In addition to the abstracts, this volume includes an Author Index and a General Index, described in the section 'The Bibliography, Its Format and Use' beginning on page 103, and an update for each of the environmental bibliographies described above. Appendix I, 'Coal and the Environment Abstract Series: Bibliography on Mined-Land Reclamation' lists on page 141 publications acquired by BCR since 1975. Appendix II 'Coal and the Environment Abstract Series: Mine Drainage Bibliography,' lists on page 169 publications acquired since 1976.
