Dinosaur Extinction: Causal Loop Diagram of Earth Feedback System

Dewey M. McLean, Virginia Tech

This site features a causal loop diagram from system dynamics methodology showing the solar-earth-space energy flow system (the dominant flow system driving earth's surficial systems, including the biosphere) and interactive natural earthly processes that influence it. Also included is a discussion of the diagram, and a link to a page that explains how to read causal loop diagrams.
