The continued existence of environmental interest and results of research into global environmental problems mean that environmental science will remain an important part of the scientific agenda for the foreseeable future. This mixture requires the environmental scientist both to understanding physical and biological processes as well as the social and economic background.

Goals: 1. To be able assess the extent to which man has influenced the natural environment 2.

The prediction of future trends in human influence 3. The production and assessment of strategies to alter expected trends. The way in which these goals have been met in environmental science has been through adopting a systems approach.

The concept of a system was typified by Arthur Tansley's ecosystem in Goudie , but the general approach was not adopted more widely until the s, when geographers found that systems approaches were useful in explaining the nature of the physical environment. All environments are systems with interrelating factors that make them up. The exact morphology of any system at any one time will be the result of a particular set of inputs and outputs.

Should any of the factors in this ecosystem change, all the others will change to composite and the nature of the ecosystem will change also. Most systems are open: the factors that control them being derived from outside.

Coastal Systems, the morphology of the coast is determined in large party by external forces - principally wave action. Material is added by transport from elsewhere and also removed on the other hand there are internai factors that shape coastal ecosystems, for example rock type.

Closed Systems are usually global in scale.

In these nothing is lost from the system. However, the sun itself is an external factor; so are closed systems really closed? Technically speaking the answer must be no as any changes in isolation will have a profound affect on global temperatures and this has been one factor to explain pleistocene and holocene climate changes.

If the morphology of a system is dependent upon the factors that influence the system, it means that should any one factor change, there shall be a compensatory change in the other factors, which will result in a change in the system's equilibrium. Within the system itself, material is cycled between the components internally.

In most systems output loss results in a negative feedback loop to increase input to stabilise the system. It has been found that the more closed systems are, the greater the internal equilibrium they achieve. The tropical GeoJournal It circulates nutrients and water highly efficiently with little loss from the system. The consequence is little change in the m o r p h o l o g y and structure o f the rainforest for millions o f years.

Open systems are m o r e prone to outside influences and tend to be less stable, with frequently changing m o r p h o l o g y as external factors change.

Closed systems once seriously disrupted tend to n o t recover well as the m o r p h o l o g y relies entirely on efficient internal cycling.

This gain and loss from systems, with the constant changes in equilibrium can be seen as an interlocking positive and negative influences on equilibrium. The slope system sums this up.

Changes in the basal erosion status o f the stream have introduced instability into the system. The negative feedback loops on destabilised slopes change to c o m p e n s a t e and a new slope profile develops as the system moves back into equilibrium. Once stable the new slope will have different characteristics to the old d e p e n d i n g u p o n the levels o f input available.


W h a t e v e r system is studied, the same characteristics of dynamic equilibrium can be used to decribe it. We want to clarify the ecology and functions of microorganisms that exist in the ecosystem.

Biodiversity is not covered at all. Systems involving m a n are called control systems as m a n is regarded as exercising some control over the system, b u t in m a n y cases this is certainly not true. The consequence is little change in the m o r p h o l o g y and structure o f the rainforest for millions o f years.
