Odum–Tennenbaum–Brown calculus vs emergy and co-emergy analysis: A reply

Stephen E. Tennenbaum

Ecological Modelling, 2015, vol. 313, issue C, 333-340

Abstract: In a recent communication, Le Corre et al. (2015) criticize the method of calculating emergy using the co-emergy/emergy formulation given in Tennenbaum (2014). I will attempt to show that this method conforms to both the definition and the “rules of emergy algebra” laid out by Brown and Herendeen (1996). The note does raise some interesting points that should be open to discussion.
