Eilean Eisdeal host 7th April sales pitch on local tidal energy generation

The Scottish Association of Marine Science (SAMS) at Dunstaffnage is carrying out research on soundscaping, the way marine mammals ‘see’ their world and navigate it. Low frequency noise (LFN or infrasound) is known to be a major navigational instrument, with whales shown to pick up such frequency signals from extreme distances.

Wind turbines can produce LFN. Research studies – including some established, in depth and continuing studies by Australia’s Waubra Foundation, have shown that LFN can produce serious impacts on human health, including sleeplessness, night alarms produced by body vibrations, ear pressure pain, raised blood pressure and changes in cardiac performance.
