Description: Panels of Douglas-fir and robusta eucalyptus blocks showed little seasonal variation in Equilibrium Moisture Content (EMC) of wood at 19 indoor locations on Oahu, Hawaii. Differences in EMC between locations were more variable. Minimum EMC at nonair-conditioned locations was 10 percent;at air-conditioned locations. 8 percent. Maximum EMC at nonairconditioned locations was 16 percent; at air-conditioned locations, 12 percent.
Keywords: Pseudotsuga menziesii/menziesii, Eucalyptus robusta, Hawaii, moisture content, equilibrium moisture content, seasonal variation, air conditioning, indoor locations
