Student a holds the clinometer
like a target pistol with the arm outstretched and the forefinger on the trigger (refer to Figure 4).
We also measured the distance to the nearest high-tide line, altitude above sea level, and slope of the substrate using a clinometer
(Suunto type Tandem 360PC/360R).
NTS uses two key pieces of equipment to accurately measure height: a clinometer
, which is a mechanical device that measures the vertical component of the angle between your eye and a targeted object, and a laser rangefinder, which sends a laser pulse in a narrow beam towards the object and measures the time it takes for the pulse to be reflected off the target and returned to the sender.
With a clinometer
they measure tree heights, and with an incremental bore they take core samples that enable them to count rings and determine a tree's age.
Heights of the snags to the nearest meter were recorded using a clinometer
If you want to fine-tune your judgment of angles, use a clinometer
Vegetation height was measured using a tape measure or, in the case of taller plants, by using a clinometer
3X metric prism (10X English), and topographic position of the nest including slope and aspect using a clinometer
and compass (see Newell and Rodewald 2011 for more detailed description).
This is also fed to the computer that receives the elevation data from the clinometer
, and according to the type of round selected provides the ballistic solution according to its tables.
I walked away with my clinometer
, sighting the tree from different angles, hemming and hawing.
We measured percentage slope with a clinometer
and aspect with a compass.
measurements show that the average slope of the study site is 23[degrees].
