Impact assessment of Kopperå wind farm on biodiversity. Investigations and report by NaturRestaurering AS for E.ON Vind Sverige in 2012.
|Title||Impact Assessment of Kopperå wind farm, Meråker, Trøndelag|
|Identifier||Impact Assessment Kopperå wind farm|
|Study Area Description||The study area is located in Trøndelag, central Norway, and consists mainly of mountain areas. Including the uppermost parts of the forest, heaths, mires and lakes.|
The personnel involved in the project:
Two investigators walked through the terrain and stopped at watching points (see footprintWKT), and recorded species name and number of all birds observed both on the walk between points and from watching points. The transects were not strict defined, but rather "fuzzy transects" where the two investigators followed to terrain with the aim of covering most of the designated area. Investigators walk during daytime for 8-10 hours all of the three days in field.
|Study Extent||Data was recorded from 2012-06-13 to 2012-06-15 in Meråker, Trøndelag, Norway.|
Method step description:
- Walking fuzzy transects through the study area on foot. Record species name and number of observations of all birds along the way.
The data was added in 2021, and some details was lost between the time of recording and the time of uploading. Details lost are: - Exact number of birds observed - Which one of the two investigators spotted the bird(s) - Further details on metods
