  • 1 April 1993
The forests subject to budworm attack in eastern Canada vary considerably in tree species composition, and the severity of fire weather in those regions also varies. It is likely, therefore, that
MOBILE SAMPLING OF SOLAR RADIATION UNDER CONIFERS

Abstract Estimates of transmitted global radiation beneath a red pine canopy were made on seven consecutive clear days in August and on one clear day in October, using three mobile and three
Dew on reindeer lichen
TLDR
Four reindeer lichen samples placed near ground level in the open at a meteorological station showed that a simple linear relationship adequately describes the overnight rise of lichen moisture caused by dew, and that atmospheric vapour alone, on nights without rain or condensation, can raiseLichen moisture by 15%.
