Data from the southern Cascade Mountains of
Oregon has been collected for application in computer
analysis of snowfields. Vegetation type, canopy
cover, slope, aspect, insolation, and snowfield
ground truth delineation are given consideration.
In addition, a procedure for transferral of data
onto Landsat imagery was derived.
Corn oil (CO) and Sterculic foetida oil (SFO) fed rats were
injected with [9, 10-methylene-¹⁴C]sterculic acid. Less than 1%
of the label was expired as carbon dioxide. The majority of the
label was excreted in the urine as short-chain dicarboxylic acids with
an intact cyclopropane ring. The major metabolites for...
Commercial thinning young growth forests is an increasingly
important silvicultural technique for improving second growth
management of Douglas-fir stands. Research aimed at advancing the
efficiency of skyline logging operations in small wood timber stands
is essential in order to make thinning these young stands economical.
The purpose of this study...

The response of three hardwoods from Ghana and a hardwood and
three softwoods from the United States to liquid and gas-phase impregnation
was investigated. Impregnation with liquids included a sink-float
test in a water-glycerine solution and pressure treatment with a copper
sulphate solution and creosote under identical treating conditions.
The objectives of this study include: (1) analysis of Chamaecyparis
lawsoniana, C. taiwanensis, and C. formosensis forests including
the structure, composition, and dynamics of plant communities and
their environmental relationships; and (2) comparison of the temperate
Chamaecyparis forests of Taiwan and the Pacific Northwest with emphasis
on structural and successional...
A study was conducted to determine the heat transfer characteristics
of pin finned heat sinks in natural convection. Three pin
diameters were studied: 0.238 cm, 0.318 cm and 0.396 cm. The pins
were attached to the base in two arrangements, triangular and
rectangular, forming a horizontal array. Pin spacing was...
