Ecosystem changes during maturation


increasing exergy consumption

På svenska
When development goes towards increasing efficiency in the use of a limiting flow, this always happens in a logistic way

Using a resource more than it can give is called 'Overshoot'
Phosphorus mining on Nauru

Structure, geochemical cycles and internal relationships all change within the ecosystem during the process of maturation

All of these processes tend to increase the exergy consumption capacity of the ecosystem.

All of these processes lead to a more efficent exergy consumption
Since exergy-poor radiation has a low temperature, large areas containing mature ecosystem seem cool when seen from outside. This can be recorded using satellites measuring the Outgoing Longwave Radiation
