The thickness change of coal seam can be resulted from several reasons, like primary sedimentary environment and later tectonic deformation. The thickness change ahead of driving face may have an impact on the efficiency and safety of the mining progress, thus the advanced prediction of seam thickness is important. However, it is hard to predict the seam thickness with a single advanced detection method. This paper combines three methods, e.g., MSP, MRP, and MTEM to perform a joint detection, and makes data fusion through wavelet analysis, which makes use of the elastic wave field and geo-electrical field characteristics. A field test indicates that the prediction of seam thickness by means of integrated advanced detection is approximately accurate with an error less than 5%.

"My experiences in publishing a paper with Bentham Open is good. I must say that the speed of publication in The Open Petroleum Engineering Journal is very fast. It takes only two month for the pioneer reviewing process. The delay was caused by me. And what’s more, the publisher’s office is quite helpful. I guess they are dealing with thousands emails every week, but they process my request in a very short period of time."
