RESOLVE (2001). Proceedings of the National Avian - Wind Power Planning Meeting IV. Paper Presented at the National Avian - Wind Power Planning Meeting IV, Carmel, California, USA.
Abstract: 

Representatives of the wind industry, academia, conservation interests, and state and federal government agencies met in May 2000 to discuss research and regulatory approaches that could be helpful in predicting, measuring, and reducing the numbers of birds killed by collisions with wind turbines. The purposes of the meeting were to:

 

  • share research results and update stakeholders on research conducted on avian/wind interactions;
  • identify questions/issues stakeholders have about research results;
  • develop conclusions about some avian/wind issues; and to identify stakeholder questions/issues for future avian/wind research

 

This meeting was the fourth in a series convened by the Avian Subcommittee of the National Wind Coordinating Committee (NWCC), as part of the Subcommittee's efforts to address and build consensus on issues of public policy, scientific research, and stakeholder/public involvement related to avian/wind power interactions. The Proceedings of the first three meetings, held in 1994, 1995, and 1998, can be accessed on the NWCC's website, or obtained from the National Technical Information Service (see p. ii of this volume for details). National Avian-Wind Power Planning Meeting (NAWPPM) IV opened with a brief history of the past three meetings, and an overview of studies that have been or are being conducted.
