Carbon Cycle- A Biogeochemical Process

In the carbon cycle carbon is an element that is vital to most living organisms on Earth. It is also a key component of our atmosphere first carbon can recycle through our earth the ocean living factor or abiotic factor in the air. Carbon recycles among 5 major locations these items include the atmosphere, the terrestrial, biosphere or land the Earth's surface interior, the ocean, and human influence. Let's take a look at what happens to each of these areas carbon is found in the atmosphere in at least two forms carbon dioxide and methane. This atmospheric carbon can be absorbed by autotrophs like plants and plankton to be used in photosynthesis. It can also be absorbed by bodies of water and the ocean when carbon is absorbed by the ocean it reacts with the water and creates carbonic acid. The terrestrial biosphere which is another term for the earth's land has served path carbon that it can take.

First, these are an exchange between plants and animals plants absorb carbon in the form of carbon dioxide for photosynthesis, and animals release plants that contain carbon animals also release carbon as methane during digestion and the soil contains decomposers that release carbon into the atmosphere and the soil carbon is stored in the earth interior. Carbon in the lithosphere includes fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas along with deposits like limestone and volcanoes may release some of this carbon stored in the lithosphere when they erupt up next to the ocean. Darshan was the greatest exchange quantity of cycle carbon of stores a large amount of carbon. The ocean has a large amount of plankton that absorb carbon dioxide that is used for photosynthesis. Humans also influence the movement of carbon. Burning fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The production of clinker which is used for cement from limestone also increases carbon. In addition, deforestation by a human can cause the amount of carbon in the atmosphere to increase. So there you go an overview of the path of an atom of carbon that made a place during the carbon cycle.
