Städer som löper risk för att drabbas av översvämningar måste utveckla strategier för att motverka skador på infrastrukturer och säkerställa allmänhetens trygghet. READ MORE

  2. 2. WIND POWER MANAGEMENT:RISK ANALYSIS FOR WIND POWER PROJECTS IN NORTH SWEDISH WHITE-TAILED SEA EAGLE HABITATS

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Björn Larsson; [2022]
    Keywords : Carrying capacity; density-dependent effect; displacement effect; land use;

    Abstract : By investigating the scope of future wind turbine projects in north Swedish coastal regions and Lapland inland, identification of especially sensitive areas and the effect of wind farm location for the white- tailed sea eagles (WSE) Haliaeetus albicilla at these sites were evaluated. Since the 1980s the WSE the population growth has been stable and intensified in the last two decades, the upgoing trend is evident especially at coastal areas of the Bothnian Sea and Lapland inland, these regions are also considered suitable for wind farm projects.
