Carbon Cylce And Sinks


Carbon sinks are natural systems that **** up and store carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

The main natural carbon sinks are plants, the ocean and soil. Plants grab carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to use in photosynthesis; some of this carbon is transferred to soil as plants die and decompose. The oceans are a major carbon storage system for carbon dioxide. Marine animals also take up for for photosynthesis, while some carbon dioxide simply dissolves in the seawater.
