Prediction of loblolly pine wood properties using transmittance near-infrared spectroscopy

  author={Robert Sykes and Bailian Li and Gary R. Hodge and Barry Goldfarb and John F. Kadla and H.-m. Chang},
Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is a rapid nondestructive technique that has been used to characterize chemical and physical properties of a wide range of materials. In this study, transmittance NIR spectra from thin wood wafers cut from increment cores were used to develop calibration models for the estimation of α-cellulose content, average fiber length, fiber coarseness, and lignin content in the laboratory. Eleven-year-old trees from two sites were sampled using 12-mm increment cores… CONTINUE READING
