This report describes a method for anticipating some of the impacts of coal development under different policy options. The Interregional Coal Analysis Model (ICAM) for the Western States, projects the likely shifts in the patterns of coal production, transportation, and utilization which might result from alternative policy strategies. It describes the structure of and the data in two models. The 1975 model describes the coal mining-large electrical generation plant interactions which existed in 1975. It develops a base solution against which alternative scenario solutions are compared. The 1985 model portrays a reasonable reference case for 1985. It also develops a base solution for use in comparing scenario analyses.
