Water and carbon cycles

Physical factors affecting hydrogrpah
Size of basin, valley size, vegetation cover, soil type
1 of 10
Human factors affecting hydrograph
Deforestation-roots reduce throughflow interception and infiltration, agriculture animals compact soil=more surface run off
2 of 10
Physical variation//natural variation
Drought=reduce stores, vegitation dies= affecting infiltration
3 of 10
Human variation//land use change and farming
LUC:Replaces ground with imperamble F: controls local water cycle=infiltration, soils with plants=high infiltration
4 of 10
C: stores
Lithosphere, ocean, atmosphere
5 of 10
Transfers of carbon
Photosynthesis, litterfall, ocean atmosphere exchange-carbon absorbed and released by diffusion, which reacts with water
6 of 10
Processes of carbon cycle
Weathering, carbon sequestration, capturing co2
7 of 10
Human changes to carbon cycle
Fossil fuels= increasing temp..Land use change=10% of carbon release..farming= fertilisers and machinery
8 of 10
Modifying combustion
Tech to capture co2 released from power stations to be transported them stored
9 of 10
Modifying deforestation
Consumers buy sustainable wood, logging, replanting
