1.6 Impurities in coal

Coal rank reflects the maturity of a coal, but another variable is the ratio of combustible organic matter to inorganic impurities found within the coal. As discussed earlier, impurities result mainly from clay minerals washed into the mire prior to its eventual burial. In addition, some impurities are formed from the plant material itself during coalification.

These inorganic impurities are non-combustible and therefore leave an inert residue or ash after coal combustion. High-a

"Eden Rock" by Charley Causley (poetry reading)
A projection of the afterlife, drawn from idyllic memories of childhood. He pictures his parents as they used to be when he was a child. Most parents take photographs and videos of their children to provide lasting memories to treasure in later years. But very few take pictures of themselves - and it is pictures of the parents that the children will want to see: that is what THEY saw at the time. Women grow conscious of the toll taken by passing years and become more and more reluctant

1.2 The origins of coal

If you examine a piece of coal, at first sight it appears black and rather homogenous. However, closer inspection generally shows a series of parallel bands up to a few millimetres thick. Most obvious are shiny bands that break into angular pieces if struck. Between them are layers of dull, relatively hard coal and thin weak layers of charcoal-like carbon. Coal splits easily along these weak layers, which crumble to give coal its characteristic dusty black coating.

The Moon's atmosphere is almost as insubstantial as Mercury's, and probably has much the same origin. The Clementine mission returned our first clear views of the lunar poles, showing sites in particular near the south pole that are permanently in shadow, and which could therefore be places where ice might accumulate (Figure 1).
