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
Now Taylor Hobson has introduced a digital clinometer
that measures angles over a range of +/-45 degrees with 0.
We used clinometers
to measure average canopy, subcanopy, and tall shrub height, and measured canopy closure as the mean of four densiometer readings per plot.
That was the hope Saturday as about a dozen rover robots roamed the beach while scientists from around the globe talked of autonomous navigation, pitch-and-roll clinometers
, rocker-bogie chassis and encoders for dead reckoning.
At the middle school level, sixth grade classes will be using the clinometers
they've built in class to measure the rockets' flight," adds Hedges.
A gyroscope (for short-term control of machine heading relative to a previous heading), a flux-gate compass (for heading relative to magnetic north), and clinometers
(for pitch and roll angles relative to gravity) are mounted on the continuous miner.
To assess the trails from practical standpoint, each trail was checked with compass and clinometers
in field and any potential modification was corrected in maps.
Barrel superelevation as well as pitch and cant angles are provided by internal clinometers
, sensors measuring also atmospheric temperature and pressure while cross wind data are manually provided by the operator who also selects the ammunition type.
Complementing the needs of UOE, the 2011-2012 HEI-ICI project provided a server to host online and distance learning (ODL) courses, as well as projectors, laptops, and forest measurement equipment such as clinometers
But instead of using lasers or clinometers
to measure height, they use skills they've learned over the years as ISA-certified arborists.
ground such as: GPS units, data recorders, compasses, clinometers
, diameter tapes, field notebooks, and other
