Entropy production in an energy balance Daisyworld model
Daisyworld is a simple mathematical model of a planetary system that exhibits self-regulation due to the nature of feedback between life and its environment. A two-box Daisyworld is developed that shares a number of features with energy balance climate models. Such climate models have been used to explore the hypothesis that non-equilibrium, dissipative systems such as planetary atmospheres are in a state of maximum entropy production with respect to the latitudinal flux of heat. When values for heat diffusion in the two-box Daisyworld are selected in order to maximize this rate of entropy production, the viability range of the daisies is maximized. Consequently planetary temperature is regulated over the widest possible range of solar forcing.

Abstract

Daisyworld is a simple mathematical model of a planetary system that exhibits self-regulation due to the nature of feedback between life and its environment. A two-box Daisyworld is developed that shares a number of features with energy balance climate models. Such climate models have been used to explore the hypothesis that non-equilibrium, dissipative systems such as planetary atmospheres are in a state of maximum entropy production with respect to the latitudinal flux of heat. When values for heat diffusion in the two-box Daisyworld are selected in order to maximize this rate of entropy production, the viability range of the daisies is maximized. Consequently planetary temperature is regulated over the widest possible range of solar forcing.
