1. Pamukkale (Turkey)
In Turkish the name literally means Cotton Castle and it is easy to see why it was given that name. Yet this geological wonder is also the site of the ancient city of Hierapolis and over the centuries the two have seemed to come together, almost merged into one. In fact some of the old tombs in the city's necropolis have become part of landscape. The site itself is a series of travertines and hot springs. The travertines here have a concentric appearance and are almost sheer white giving the area an ethereal appearance. The hot springs precipitate calcium carbonate at their mouths and produce the strange almost organic looking structures.

We all know how important air is for our life. However today we will focus on the other beneficial part of air and that is energy that is obtained by moving air. The motion results from the heating and cooling of the Earth; thus, wind energy is an indirect form of Solar Energy.We are more in need of renewable sources of energy for our survival and what can be best other than wind energy. Wind energy is one of the oldest forms of energy used to supplement human muscle. The conversion of wind energy to various other useful forms, like electricity, is known as wind power. Wind energy is converted into these forms using wind turbines. There are wind power plants, or wind farms which are clusters of wind machines used to produce electricity. A wind farm usually has dozens of wind machines scattered over a large area.
