Hydrologic and Hydraulic Considerations 87 In mountainous regions precipitation due to lifting of air by ground slopes, called orographic precipitation, is complemented by precipitation due to meteorological processes that would be present were the mountains not there, called convergence precipitation.

Assessing the hydrology of potential Federal coal-lease tracts, because of their dissemination and limited data, requires some predictive capability. Four tracts assessed were located in the outcrop of three coal groups and of other relatively impermeable rocks in the Pottsville Formation.

About million tons, or 38 percent, of the recoverable coal is Federally owned and has been identified for potential lease sale.

To put the federal coal program in context, it made up more than 42 percent of total U.S. coal production inbut accounted for only 20 percent of the total value of coal mined nationally that year. Because federal coal is produced primarily from efficient surface mines, federal coal production employs relatively few people.
