The PATH algorithm, which is the efficient dynamic
programming algorithm developed by Paredes and Brodie
(1987) was interpreted from a different point of view.
This modification of the PATH algorithm by the calculus of
variations vastly diminished the calculation task and
memory required to store optimal stands at each stage....
This study dealt with research problems at the landscape level. The objectives of this thesis were to develop tools to study and characterize landscapes and to interface with a geographic information system (GIS), to evaluate landscape indices, and to examine development of forest cutting patterns under different cutting methods and...
A method was developed to formulate and solve a fifty-year tactical harvest scheduling problem that included spatial wildlife habitat goals and constraints for a 4800-acre watershed in Northwestern Oregon under four scenarios. Three goals and two habitat constraints were included in each scenario. The first goal was a volume goal....
Hann and Scrivani (1987) developed dominant height growth equations for Douglas- fir in southwest Oregon using stem analysis data sets with an upper age of approximately 125 years at breast height. The objective of this study was to determine whether these equations could be extrapolated for ages of 250 years...
A stand level model, PREscription generator under Multiple Objectives (PREMO) was built to generate prescriptions that address multiple objectives for management of the forests of the Applegate River Watershed. PREMO is a part of the landscape model of the Applegate River Watershed Forest Simulation Project and generates prescription choices for...
RICHER is a sophisticated interpolation routine which allows the user to
generate data for points he does not have. The following activities
are at best marginally legitimate.
A. Regenerate a dataset at a different step size (monthly points
instead' of bimonthly)
B. Estimate, missing data due to equipment failure
The executive program and operating syntax of the forest growth model SUCSIM IV are outlined in Section A. Lists of parameters,
state variables and other quantities, and their values (if constant) are given in Section B. The remainder of the bulletin is devoted to the models used. The quantities given...
Automated Storage and Retrieval (AS/R) Systems
have had a considerable impact on manufacturing and
distribution processes. The configuration of AS/R systems
vary considerably, depending on the particular application.
The effect of different retrieval scheduling rules
is analyzed and compared for three different unit-load
AS/R systems operating under dual-command cycle. The...
This study was initiated to determine the relative efficiency
of systematic, stratified and simple random sampling for crown area
and tree frequency estimation of five of the major forest types found
in the Pacific Northwest. Several of the more common methods of
estimating spatial distribution coefficients were evaluated. Finally
