Werner Ebeling nsIn aquatic thermodynamics, Werner Ebeling (c.1946-) is a German ecological physicist noted for his 1981 paper “On the Thermodynamics of Irreversible Processes in Ecosystems”, co-written with German physical oceanographer Rainer Feistel, in which they develop a top down thermodynamic model of aquatic ecosystems, along the way introducing concepts such as the dilute solution model.
