    Coal is not formed in an arid environment or in a sand dune environment, or in a lagoon environment.

    Anoxic aquatic environment + pressure, heat, and more pressure.

      Except Diamonds are formed by Lumps of carbon that are HIGHLY compressed---as in being included in hot LAVA---which COOLS and compresses the lumps into DIAMONDS.  As in the rock, KIMBERLITE---Diamond including solidified LAVA-----Where mining takes place.

    Dze is correct but your teacher is probably following the long time evolutionary paradigm so the answer they want is Lagoon.


    "According to the standard theory, remains of plant debris accumulate as a rotting mass called peat in swamps and marshes" however "the field evidence is consistent with catastrophic destruction and burial of vegetation during Noah’s Flood, and totally inconsistent with the slow and gradual swamp theory which prevails among geologists committed to the idea that ‘the present is the key to the past’, or geological evolution.

    pressure and heat on wood for example if a large natural disaster event 'rolled up' and buried a stand of trees under tons of mud they would 'compost' and create lots of heat and coal would form .. this has been shown in a lab .. it does 'not' take millions of years as some narratives have people believe ..

      But which one would it fall under? Lagoonal, or evaporitic?
