What is Wind Turbine Syndrome?

Need a crash course on WTS? If you’ve got only 10 minutes and you want to know what all this “Wind Turbine Syndrome” stuff is about—read “Inconvenient Truths,” by Pierpont. Short and to the point. (Click here for Pierpont’s curriculum vitae.)

If you’ve got another 20 minutes to spare, read “Wind Turbine Syndrome: A Twenty-Minute Crash Course.”

If you want the latest clinical thinking on WTS, read “Wind Turbine Syndrome and the Brain,” likewise by Pierpont.

If you want more detail, but in plain English, read “Your Guide to WTS.”

If you’re interested only in the noise and vibration from turbines, read “How Loud Is Too Loud,” by Kamperman & James, two distinguished noise engineers.
