This study of transportation requirements for coal movements through 1985 is one of a series conducted for the U.S. Department of Transportation to identify and quantify future transportation requirements for energy materials. The primary objectives of the study were to develop a scenario for 1985 coal production and consumption and to project water coal traffic equipment and facilities requirements consistent with the scenario. A second objective was to identify the planning processes used by the water carriers to identify and prepare for future traffic. The third objective of the study was to identify potential constraints to and institutional issues impacting increases in water coal traffic and the ability of the water carriers to handle it profitably.
