Development of a photogrammetric method of measuring tree taper outside bark

, : Development of a photogrammetric method of measuring tree taper outside bark. General Technical Report Southern Research Station, USDA Forest Service (SRS-92): 347-350

This paper describes the development of a new method and procedures for measuring tree taper using digital photographs of the trees. This method has several advantages including: (i) creating a permanent record of the tree; (ii) showing multiple sides of each tree to be measured; (iii) allowing measurement to be done in the comfort of an office; and (iv) providing a non-destructive method of obtaining tree taper measurements.

Although the thalamus is an important module in "pain networks," there are few studies of the effect of experimental pain upon thalamic oscillations. We have now examined the hypothesis that, during a series of painful cutaneous laser st...
