Notes and Observations: Portable X-Ray Equipment in Forestry Research
Abstract:A Picker 50 KV X-ray unit has been successfully adapted for field use and tested in studies of a variety of forest inserts without destroying their habitat. X-ray photographs have given information impossible to obtain with conventional destructive sampling procedures. The equipment gives very little trouble in the field and is completely safe to use without the necessity of heavy shielding.
