Carbon Cycle:

CO2 is produced by combustion of biomass and Fossilized organic matter.

Animals such as reef-building corals and Mollusc have hard parts that are composed of CaCo3 and can become fossilized in Limestone.

Process that carbon does to get back to the atmosphere:




4.Volcanic eruption


6.Release from the Ocean

Reservoir/sinks for carbon: coal, soil, Gas/oil, limestone, and atmosphere.

Carbone dioxide is converted by autotrophs into Carbohydrates via photosynthesis and returned to the atmosphere as CO2 though Respiration (fluxes).

In aquatic ecosystems carbon – dissolved CO2 And hydrogen carbon ions.

CO2 diffuses from the atmosphere into the water Or autotrophs.

CO2 is produced by respiration.

Methane is produced from organic matter in Anaerobic conditions by methanogenic archaea and diffuses to the atmosphere or Accumulates in the ground. 

Methane is oxidized to CO2 and H2O in the Atmosphere.

Methane is a colourless, flammable gas (CH4), The major constituent of natural gas, that is used as a fuel and is an Important source of hydrogen and a wide variety of organic compounds.

Climate Change:

CO2 and water vapour are the most significant greenhouse gases.

Other gases are: methane, nitrous oxides (N2O)

The impact of a gas depends on its ability to Absorb long way radiation as well as its consternation in the atmosphere.

Longer wave radiation absorbed by greenhouse Gases that retain heat in the atmosphere.

Global temperatures and climate patterns are Influenced by concentrations of greenhouse gases.

There is a correlation between rising Atmospheric concentration of CO2 since industrial revolution and also because Of global average temperatures.

Recent increase due to increase combustion of Fossilized organic matter.

Greenhouse gases are gases that absorb infrared Radiation and radiate heat in all directions.

Greenhouse gases increase the temperature of The Earth causing global warming.
