Wind energy as a renewable energy source attracts considerable interest in the climate change debate owing to its potential to reduce CO^ emissions. Its development, however, faces a number of challenges that depend not only on the physical, political and economic conditions, but also on the legal framework regulating, among other issues, jurisdictional, planning and environmental aspects as well as access to the resource, grid and market. This article provides a comparative analysis of the development of wind energy in selected countries. It identifies a number of regulatory challenges in the specific environmental and energy law fields and points to the necessity of an adequate balancing of positive as well as...

Recent improvements in both acquisition of sediment temperatures and simulation modelling of heat and ground-water transport, are leading to widespread implementation of heat as a tracer of groundwater fluxes near streams. The present work provides a brief historical review of the use of heat as a tracer of shallow ground-water movement, and details current theory used to estimate stream/groundwater exchanges. The governing equations for heat and ground-water transport in the near-stream environment are presented. The various relations between the hydrologic state of a stream channel and the expected thermal response is graphical depicted. Techniques for installation and monitoring of temperature and stage equipment...
