Notes: Semiautomated Recording of Wood Cell Dimensions
Abstract:A sonic-digitizing unit allows large volumes of highly precise anatomical measurements to be made rapidly. Magnetic tape storage and direct reading to a computer for analysis eliminate most human error input in data handling. Sonic measuring equipment, recording equipment, and computer programs for data processing are described, and performance of the system is evaluated. Forest Sci. 27:336-338.
