Abstract : Department of Energy (DOE)-specific regulations on mining have been added to the Computer-Aided Environmental Legislative Data System (CELDS), an online, interactive database developed by the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL). CELDS indexes and abstracts environmental regulations of the Federal government and the 50 states. Included now are coal mining regulations for the Federal government and those states having Department of Interior approval for their mining programs. The coal mining regulations cover Federal regulatory programs for surface mining and underground mining of coal on Federal, Indian, and private lands. A draft thesaurus of mining terms has been developed. This thesaurus, which will be merged into the existing CELDS thesaurus, will be used to index CELDS records which cover coal mining regulations. The thesaurus terms cover both coal mining technology and environmental impacts of coal mining. (Author)
