Effectiveness Of Operational Mitigation In Reducing Bat Mortality And An Assessment Of Bat And Bird Fatalities At The Sheffield Wind Facility, Vermont. Martin, C. Ph.D. Thesis, 2015.
abstract   bibtex   
Chapter I is an introduction to wind energy growth in North America and a review of bat and bird fatalities at wind facilities. Chapter II examines bat and bird fatalities at the Sheffield Wind Facility in Vermont, including fatality estimates, patterns of fatalities, and the relationship between fatalities and environmental and site conditions. Chapter III assesses the effectiveness of operational mitigation at reducing bat fatalities, while incorporating temperature as a covariate to fine-tune the design to weather conditions when bats are most active. The information in my thesis is intended to further the understanding of bat and bird fatalities at wind facilities and to guide future mitigation efforts to reduce turbine-related bat fatalities.
