Welcome to the website for Stracher, Prakash, Sokol: Coal and Peat Fires: A Global Perspective: Volume 4: Geology, Combustion, and Case Studies.

Coal and Peat Fires: A Global Perspective is a compelling collection of research conducted by scientists and engineers around the world. It presents the scientific and industrial communities as well as the interested lay reader with studies about prehistoric as well as historic coal and peat fires and magnificent illustrations of such fires and related research from countries around the world-a totally new contribution to science. This last of four volumes in the collection, Peat--Geology, Combustion, and Case Studies, examines in detail peat fires chronicled in several countries. In addition, the geology of peat, peat megafires, infrared analysis of fires, and the mathematical modelling of fire hazards are presented. This companion website houses additional chapters, a data repository, and a collection of presentations and videos on coal and peat fires. Also be sure to check out the Interactive Map of Coal and Peat Fires created by Rudiger Gens.
