During the first eighteen months (April 10, 2006 to October 15, 2007) of this three-year study, carcass surveys were conducted once per week at every other wind turbine, for a total of 78 rounds at 50 turbines. After this period (October 15, 2007 to April 11, 2009), carcass surveys were conducted at the second half of wind turbines, for a total of 78 complete rounds.
