This project is about the effects of the carbon cycle on man. In this project you will learn about the industrial revolution, the effects of combustion and deforestation on the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide, the greenhouse effect and the gases and the effects etc. Life of earth is based on carbon. Living things acquire carbon from their environment - from air, Water, soil, and rock and from other living things. Carbon moves in complex chemical and physical transfers from sources, or reservoirs, where carbon is released, to sinks, where carbon is taken up. This movement is the global carbon cycle. Earth's atmosphere, ocean, land, and living things can be both sources and sinks of carbon. The processes of photosynthesis, respiration, death, and decomposition move carbon through the
Carbon cycle partly as carbon dioxide. In Earth's atmosphere, CO2 is only about 0.03% by volume, but it is an important "greenhouse" gas. It traps in the lower atmosphere much of the heat radiated from the Earth's surface. The future effect of increasing atmospheric CO2 worries many people. More CO2
Should trap more...
