Snow Fence Shielding of Precipitation Gages
Wind has long been recognized as a major source of error in the measured catch by precipitation gages. The generally accepted Alter or Nipher shields improve the characteristics of the...

Sediment Yields from Central Colorado Snow Zone
To determine the effects of roads and forest-cover changes on sediment yields, measurements were made on one carefully logged and two undisturbed watersheds in the Fraser Experimental...

Structural Timber Research at Forest Products Lab
The goal of research at the U.S. Forest Products Laboratory on the engineering uses of wood, like that of all laboratory research, is directed toward providing the greatest possible benefits...

Forest Service Research on Structural Use of Wood
Current and recent research on structural use of wood at the Forest Products Laboratory of the Forest Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture, is reviewed briefly. Subjects covered include...

Wood Engineering in Forestry Laboratories
The organization of the Forest Products Laboratories of Canada and the manner in which they function under the Department of Forestry of Canada are briefly described. Although mention...

Forest Drainage Research in the Coastal Plain
Tree measurements and soil evaluations indicate that drainage is responsible for nearly doubling the productivity of pine pulpwood in some forest wetlands in the coastal plain. Ditches...

Face-Wrinkling Mode of Buckling
Two methods are presented for predicting face-wrinkling failure stresses for edgewise loaded sandwich panels. One method, based on Forest Products Laboratory theoretical parameters, is...

Securing More Nearly True Precipitation Measurement
The catch of freely exposed precipitation gages is deficient during windy conditions. Small-scale attached wind shields improve gage performance to some extent, but larger-scale obstructions...

Forests and Water Yield
Over half a century ago (1897) the Federal Government passed a law that provided for the permanent administration of forest reserves carved out of the rapidly diminishing public domain...

Economic Criteria for Water Development Projects
Water resources in national life; total withdrawal and requirements 1950-1975; nature of evaluation; costs for water, land and forest conservation and development; optimum use of resources;...
