The burning of coal has a number of environmentally harmful constituents, including carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), sulphure dioxide (SO2) and the oxides of nitrogen. Carbon dioxide is one of the gases that contribute to the greenhouse effect. Unlike other nitrogen oxides, nitrous oxide is a major greenhouse gas. Hence, study has been done on CO2 and N2O gases in coal mine fire area of Jharia coalfield. The concentration of the gases was high in fire zone. The paper deals with the study of lateral fluctuation of the concentration of the gases from the outcrop of fire coming through the cracks due to the burning of in-situ coals seams.
