This study tested the use of near-infrared hyperspectral images to estimate moisture content (MC) and basic specific gravity (BSG) of thawed and frozen logs of three species: quaking aspen, balsam poplar, and black spruce.
For each species, more than 90 small 4 cm cubic samples were prepared and subjected to drying steps in both frozen and thawed Cited by: 5. Poplar leaves can achieve lengths of 6 and 7 inches, with many having widths larger than most birch leaves are long.
