2016/2017 ICCP Accreditation Program
|February 28, 2016||Filled under General Information||
The International Committee for Coal and Organic Petrology (ICCP) is pleased to invite you to participate in the 2016-2017 Accreditation round. The ICCP has three Accreditation Programs:
- Single Coal Accreditation Program (SCAP) for both maceral group and vitrinite random reflectance analyses. In this program the ability of an analyst to identify and quantify the maceral groups and to identify and measure the vitrinite reflectance of a coal sample according to ISO standards is tested. Organizer: Kimon Christanis (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Dispersed Organic Matter Vitrinite Reflectance Accreditation Program (DOMVR). In this program the ability of an analyst to identify and measure the reflectance of vitrinite occurring as dispersed vitrinite in rocks such as carbonaceous shales or hydrocarbon source rocks is tested. Organizer: Angeles G. Borrego (email@example.com).
- Coal Blends Accreditation Program (CBAP). In this program the ability of an analyst to identify the number of coals in a blend and their petrographic characteristics such as vitrinite reflectance and maceral group composition according to ISO standards is tested. Organic petrology is the only technique able to yield information of the individual component coals within a coal blend. Organizer: Isabel Suárez-Ruiz (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Deadline for applications: end of April 2016
