Eagle Research Framework
If you’re interested in learning more about the work of the American Wind Wildlife Institute, you may be interested in a new report, Eagle Research Framework, which outlines the organization’s work to date. The report highlights the AWWI’s funding sources, partners and outputs. For more information, visit the website.
AWWI’s work on eagles
The American Wind Wildlife Institute (AWWI) is working with partners to improve the balance between wind energy development and eagle conservation. Its most recent white paper, released in November 2011, cites the input of scientific experts and identifies research needed to improve implementation and compliance with the Eagle Guidance. The paper also summarizes recent data on the bald and golden eagle populations, and discusses the take thresholds for eagle management units.
To address these conflicts, AWWI is developing new tools and conducting research in order to find solutions. It has partnered with state wildlife agencies, and continues to expand its partnerships in wind growing regions. Additionally, it is working with federal agencies to promote sustainable wind development and wildlife conservation.
AWWI also partners with a number of other nonprofits to support its work on eagle conservation. Its executive director, Abby Arnold, has been with the organization since 2010, having previously served as interim director. She also works as a senior mediator at Kearns & West, and has served as a strategic advisor to the NWCC. She has a Master’s degree in public administration from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and a B.A. in environmental planning from UC Santa Cruz.
The Eagle Research Center in Rwanda is a non-profit organization. Its mission is to conduct quality research in the country. The center implements research projects and manages donor funds. Funds for its projects come from local and international sources. To date, it has raised more than $1.6 million.
The National Bald and Golden Eagle Research Fund supports a variety of eagle research. It supports the study of eagle behavior at wind energy facilities. The research includes the use of Bayesian predictive models to estimate eagle take at wind energy facilities. The resulting models provide more precise estimates of eagle take than previous studies. The project is also helping to improve compensation programs for eagles.
Funding for Eagle research comes from several sources, including federal grants, loans, and RTD sales taxes. The Eagle Project is part of FasTracks, a plan that voters approved in 2004. It is expected to complete the B Line extension to Westminster by 2016, along with the University of Colorado A Line and the G Line. These components are part of the University of Colorado A Line, a 23-mile electric commuter rail corridor connecting Union Station to Denver International Airport, with intermediate stations at 38th and Blake Streets, 40th Ave & Airport Blvd*Central Park, and 61st and Pena Boulevard.
Eagle Research Corporation and SICK are partnering to bring their new ultrasonic gas flow meter to the United States market. This device is designed for real-time measurements of gas flow in pipelines and other applications. It is a non-profit organization with many connections in federal law enforcement. Eagle Research often responds to inquiries from these agencies for educational seminars.
Autosol’s ACM supports most communication protocols, including the Eagle Research protocol, which feeds SCADA systems with data from the field. This technology enables Eagle Research to rapidly bring data from the field to the front office. This allows companies to take advantage of Eagle’s automation expertise, which includes water, natural gas, and cathodic protection.
The Outputs of Eagle research design framework is a structured process for conducting research. It helps identify the research question and the objectives, determine the body of knowledge to be examined, and select the data collection and inquiry strategy. Finally, it helps identify the expected results and knowledge contributions. This framework also helps the researcher improve confidence in his or her research.
There are several steps in this process, and each step should lead to the desired outcome. First, the researcher must identify the most important questions to focus on. Usually, these questions are grouped based on the subject of the research, the title of the article, and the journal it was published in. If several articles were published at the same time, they might be grouped together.
Second, it is vital to study how a particular population survives and evolves. This is why long-term monitoring is essential. In addition, it is important to look at subpopulations of the species.
