Farmers' Guide to Wind Energy: Legal Issues in Farming the Wind
Ships in 3-5 business days
This book serves as a guide to the many legal issues faced by farmers and rural landowners who seek to develop wind energy projects. The Farmers' Guide to Wind Energy: Legal Issues in Farming the... More > Wind provides legal information for individuals developing wind projects, regardless of size. This includes farmer-owned large utility-scale wind farms as well as smaller on-farm or residential wind turbine projects. Legal issues covered in this guide include negotiating wind property agreements, siting a wind farm, liability risks associated with developing and operating wind turbines, project financing, choice of business structure, government incentives for wind development, and the tax consequences of these efforts.< Less
The story of a young girl growing up in the Kickapoo Valley in the 1950's and how her imagination helps her to overcome her fear and find her gift in the process.
Riding with the Wind
Ships in 3-5 business days
Riding with the Wind is a rollicking eco-adventure for middle grade readers, the story of an unlikely friendship between Chester, a timid squirrel, and Gabby, a plucky chipmunk. Both animals share a... More > burning desire to escape their increasingly difficult city lives, where global warming and crowding threaten their very existence.
As soon as Chester and Gabby head off together, they fall into a towering waterfall and nearly drown. Fate steps in as Fire Crown, king of the crows, and Omani, a mythic spirit that dwells in the huge falls that once powered the now struggling city, rescue them.
Transported by the brave son of Fire Crown, a gigantic crow named Jet-Glider, the unlikely adventurers set out in search of greener pastures. Their journey spans four seasons and takes them to far-flung and wild places in the most densely populated state in the country. Along the way, they experience fantastic creatures and constant dangers as well as the richness of the area’s history and its fragile ecology.< Less
In this application note, wind turbine technology is presented as a serious alternative for achieving sustainable energy policy objectives. Several European countries have impressive plans for the... More > coming years for installing large amounts of wind power generation. Some governments support these actions by providing tax or investment incentives. The northwest of Europe with its coastal windy waters and fine-meshed but strong electric grid give promising opportunities for investing companies and wind farm developers.< Less
Exploring the Solar Wind
This book consists of a selection of original papers of the leading scientists in the fields of Space and Planetary Physics, Solar and Space Plasma Physics with important contributions to the theory,... More > modeling and experimental techniques of the solar wind exploration. Its purpose is to provide the means for interested readers to become familiar with the current knowledge of the solar wind formation and elemental composition, the interplanetary dynamical evolution and acceleration of the charged plasma particles, and the guiding magnetic field that connects to the magnetospheric field lines and adjusts the effects of the solar wind on Earth. I am convinced that most of the research scientists actively working in these fields will find in this book many new and interesting ideas...< Less
Wind Energy Handbook
The second edition of theWind Energy Handbook seeks to reflect the evolution of design rules
and the principal innovations in the technology that have taken place in the ten years since the
first... More > edition was published. A major new direction in wind energy development in this period
has been the expansion offshore and so the opportunity has been taken to add a new chapter
on offshore wind turbines and wind farms.
The offshore chapter begins with a survey of the present state of offshore wind farm
development, before consideration of resource assessment and array losses. Thenwave loading
on support structures is examined in depth, including a summary of the combinations of
wind and wave loading specified in the load cases of the IEC standard and descriptions of
applicable wave theories. Linear (Airy) wave theory and Dean stream function theory are
explained, together with their translation into wave loadings by means of Morison’s equation.
Diffraction and breaking wave theories are also covered.< Less
Running before the Prairie Wind
Ships in 3-5 business days
Set in southwestern Minnesota in 1890, Running before the Prairie Wind tells of Karen and Peter Larsen’s struggle to retain their Good Life by dealing with suppressed memories. Peter, the... More > former captain of a tall ship, compares life
on their bountiful pioneer farm to sailing with the wind at his back, and Karen is a catalyst for change in the lives of everyone around her. She inspires an Indian girl to explore her mixed-blood heritage and a Jewish friend to fulfill his gifts. But even Peter’s natural exuberance can not keep the oncoming storm at bay when tragedy at a neighboring farm brings back ghosts from the past. Only with the help of a
Quaker woman can the couple overcome lingering guilt and once more fill their sails.< Less
