  • Exergy analyses of the biochemical processes of photosynthesis

    This paper gives the exergy analyses of the main biochemical processes of photosynthesis in green plants. In the light reactions, photosystem I, photosystem II, and ATP-synthesis are found to operate at exergy efficiencies of 50%, 68% and 81%, respectively, so that 48% of the exergy of directly utilised solar photons is converted to biochemical energy carriers. Subsequently, in the dark ...

  • Analysis of the exergy balance of green leaves

    In this paper we analyse the exergy balance of green leaves. The exergy source comes from the direct and diffuse solar radiation absorbed in the leaves, while exergy destruction occurs as the consequence of evapotranspiration, of internal flows and of leaf metabolism. Exergy storage occurs namely in the form of glucose which is a result of photosynthesis and oxygen release into the environment. ...

  • Studying the Effect of Global Warming on Tropical Crops

    Researchers have long been using impact studies to study the effects of climate change on cocoa growth. These studies mimic conditions predicted at the end of the century1 such as higher levels of drought and higher levels of atmospheric CO2. Studies have shown that increased levels of CO2 may help offset the negative effects of reduced water availability on the ...
