The equations were developed by plotting the values of exact tree height with help of a measuring tape (on x-axis) versus the values of the same tree height measured with Hega Altimeter and Suunto Clinometer
To meet assumption (3), that perpendicular distance measurements are exact, we utilized both rangefinders with built-in clinometers
and GPS units to determine perpendicular distances to moose groups.
Sasada currently uses a minimum Trendelenburg position and an iPad when performing robotic-assisted hysterectomy and other pelvic surgeries, but not in all cases, as some OR beds have built-in clinometers
As well as being a hands-on activity for students, the methods used in these investigations have real-life relevance and are employed by architects, planners and surveyors who use the same principles to estimate the height of buildings, and/or land formations, often employing the use of a clinometer
for accurate measurements.
If you are unwilling to spring for the cost of a handheld clinometer
, there is another option if you own an iPhone: Several inexpensive apps turn your phone into an accurate clinometer
Needle of clinometer
is slipping its way toward tranquility.
Finally, they used a tape measure to walk 100 feet away from a typical tree, then peered at its crown through a device called a clinometer
to estimate the height of the stand.
CUTLINE: Quabbin Regional High School senior Dillon O'Neil sights a tree through a clinometer
to determine its height at the Stewardship Forestry station during the 20th annual Massachusetts Envirothon at Mount Wachusett Community College in Gardner yesterday.
This is done by taking a slope reading using a clinometer
from the base of the headcut to the gully length downstream, where a range pole is positioned in the middle of the gully Gully length was measured using a meter tape, through a series of traverses along the gully extent, from the headcut towards downstream, ending at the point that depth was less than 30.
The gradient of each plot was measured with a clinometer
At that marked point, they used a clinometer
(forester's instrument that measures height/slope in order to determine tree height based on the angle of measurement) <See Figure 1> to measure the height of the tree.
This new method tries to be independent of the inclination of the boat with no need of using a clinometer
or instrument of angle measurement.
