Carbon Cycle

Showing 1 to 10 of 10

Lets go for a bit of the carbon cycle :)

I challenge you to use the words: geosphere, hydrosphere, atmostphere. Explain how all these words in turn contibute of rather fit into the the re-cycle of carbon. :)

WOW. KEENO. :P

I must confess however, I'm really not very confident with the Carbon Cycle :( Can we go through it as a group? We never went through it in much detail in class did we? If we did I'm either stupid and didn't understand or have forgot :P

In fairness there were only a few thing that the Carbon cycle need to cycle carbon; sea,trees,rocks,humans,dead things,burning fossil fuels and then know how all that contributes to climate change... Rather straight forward Tbh :)

Ohhhh yeah I remember the sink thing we did now!

Thanks Matt!

Btw you missed a great day at York :] x

I think Geospher is to do with the the densest part of the earth like solid Rock and mantle this is key stage 3 memory. Hydrosphere would be to do with the Mechanics of Hydrogen evaporation from wet surfaces including oceans, rivers, lakes, soil and the leaves of plants, Water vapor is also released as Transpiration from vegetation and from animals and humans. Atmospherwuld be to do with the mechanics and motion of the atmosphere for example the gases in the surrounding atmosphere; Oxygen, Nitrogen and carbondioxide being the three main Gases n the Air lol, AtmosphericPressure is defined as the force per unit area that is applied perpendicularly to a surface by the surrounding gas. It is determined by a planet's gravitational force in combination with the total mass of a column of air above a location. lol Sorri If i got "Geophysiczy" Cant help but add a bit of wilson knolege on2 a bit of Geo-Physic. ;-D

I AM WATCHING... WITH SOME TREPIDATION... where is this going??

Carbon stores: Plant life... (In particular trees), The seas... Colder and deeper- the better, Rocks- compacted carbon due to massive amounts of pressure within the earths surface. These all lock carbon and prevents any more carbon being released into the Atmostphere. We all know what happens when too much carbon is released into the atmostphere... Blame America :)

Carbon Releases: The combustion of fossil fuels cause CO2 to be released into the atmostphere, the defforestation of trees- by cutting down the trees we are loosing more stores, rising sea temperatures, this causes the carbon that is locked in deeps seas to disassociate and be released into the atmostphere,finally the weathering of rocks- Limestone is CaCO3, when it is weathered more carbon is released into our atmostphere.

Hope this made sense 8)

matt you used to be cool _

n yh sinks are trees n cold oeans
n release things are deforrestation as it releases all th carbon tht has been stored in th trees. warm oceans also releases CO2 and like dead stuff been decomposed can also release sum CO2 i think......... and also burning fossil fuels releases CO2 n as matt said u then can link this with global warming n stuff
