Wind turbine vibration effect on animals.

Wind Energy Impacts and Issues. Wind turbine placement must consider vibration effect on animals. Although the study of the impact of industrial wind farms on migration is necessary and commendable, it is my concern that not nearly enough attention is being paid to the seismic vibrations generated by these wind farms. I can also hear … Continue reading Wind turbine vibration effect on animals.

Seismic vibrations cause Diplocardia earthworms to emerge from the soil

Grunting for worms: seismic vibrations cause Diplocardia earthworms to emerge from the soil O. Mitra,1 M.A. Callaham, Jr,2 M.L. Smith,1 and J.E. Yack1,* ABSTRACT Harvesting earthworms by a practice called ‘worm grunting’ is a widespread and profitable business in the southeastern USA. Although a variety of techniques are used, most involve rhythmically scraping a wooden … Continue reading Seismic vibrations cause Diplocardia earthworms to emerge from the soil

LIGO study of the transmission of seismic vibrations from large wind turbines

Nature and Society, October-November 2011, pp. 7-9 LIGO - Laser Interferometric Gravitational Wave Observatory VIRGO - European Gravitational Observatory in Pisa (LIGO), University of Oregon, near the Stateline Wind Project, and the (VIRGO) in Pisa, near a small wind farm, have done detailed measurements of the generation and transmission of seismic vibrations from large wind … Continue reading LIGO study of the transmission of seismic vibrations from large wind turbines

Wind Turbine stress on birds could increases chances of West Nile virus.

More stress for birds means higher chances of West Nile virus September 6, 2016| Dana Kobilinsky | THE WILDLIFE SOCIETY Researchers examined the extent to which mosquitoes with West Nile virus bit zebra finches with elevated levels of stress. Birds that have more of the stress hormone corticosterone are more likely to be bitten by mosquitoes … Continue reading Wind Turbine stress on birds could increases chances of West Nile virus.
