Ecological Engineering is an emerging field of study between ecology and engineering concerned with the designing, monitoring and constructing of ecosystems. Around Odum directed studies into radioecology [26] which included the effects of radiation on the tropical rainforest at El Verde, Puerto Rico Odum and Pidgeonand the coral reefs and ocean ecology at Eniwetok atoll.

Ecological economics is dd an active field between economics and ecology with annual conferences, international societies and an international journal. Resources, Conservation and Recycling31, p. Folio 1 — Introduction and Global Budget. Energy Analysis Overview of Nations.

Howard T. Odum

Odum in [46] well before he worked at the University of Florida. The theoretical and conceptual basis for the emergy methodology is grounded in thermodynamics [ citation needed ]general system theory [2] and systems ecology.

Hall, University Press of Colorado, Niwot. Thus it does not purport to replace economic values but to provide additional information, from a different point of view. Corning Harold G.


This extension relied on the definition of an entity as a combination of properties that have some stability with time. Afterthe emergy methodology continued to develop as the community of scientists expanded and as new applied research into combined systems of humans and nature presented new conceptual and theoretical questions.

Apparently the atoll was sufficiently radioactive that upon their arrival the Odums were able to produce an autoradiographic image of a coral head by placing it on photographic paper. Environmental technologies and competitive advantages. Production systems, graphic tool, ternary diagram, sustainability. In the ss Odum was also chairman of the International Biological Program ‘s Tropical Biome planning committee. Odum believed that this language could be applied to any system: Industrial Pollution Prevention, Berlin: Comparison of horse and tractor traction using emergy analysis, Ecological Engineering, 19, p.

These small ecosystems were often constructed from fish tanks or bottles and have been called microcosms. An Introduction to Ecotechnology, J.

The important dialog about the value of salt marsh wetlands Started from that overall model Odum “mapped in osum all the flow routes to and from the stream. Emergy and Agriculture Food production, agriculture Odum, ; Ulgiati et al.

From this view, df cycles are driven by radiant energy. Odum gave a xe definition of ecology as the study of large entities ecosystems at the “natural level of integration”. From to H. Kangas and his student, David Blersch, made significant contributions to the design of the waste water recycling system on the station. This step took him from his early interest in ornithology and brought him into the emerging field of systems ecology. Nelson Michael C.


Howard T. Odum – Wikipedia

Recognized that solar energy, deep heatand tidal momentum were basis for global processes. This ambitious program in systems ecology was summarized in Odum’s semipopular book, Environment, Power, and Society The reason that systems can not proceed toward some kind of disintegration is that such a pattern has no mechanism of maintaining itself.

Emergy accounts for different forms of energy and resources e. Environmental management and its impact on the operations functions.

Although other baselines have been used, such as coal emjoules or electrical emjoules, in most cases emergy data are given in solar emjoules. Pdum of Emergy Evaluation: Odum described his role as follows: Archived from the original on Gainesville, FloridaU. By dividing this conversion into ecological energy flow he calculated what he termed life support value. InOdum married Virginia Wood; they had two children together.

Emergy – Wikipedia

It also allows comparison of alternatives. Using emergy, sunlight, fuel, electricity, and human service can be put on diagdama common basis by expressing each of them in the emjoules of solar energy that is required to produce them. Services on Demand Journal. Hagen, the maximum power principle, diavrama the stability principle could be easily translated into the language of homeostasis and cybernetics systems. A more general statement is that “a system which has stability with time will exist longer than a system without stability”.
