Geography: Carbon cycle Features, Types, Geological vs Biological Carbon Cycle



Geography: Carbon cycle's Definition, Human activities, Biological carbon cycle, and Geological Carbon Cycle

Carbon is a major and important element in elements found on the Earth. Carbon is the main component of many minerals along with organic compounds. It is known as the 'building block of life' because it is found in every living and non-living things. Human activities increase the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and some of which is absorbed by plants and some are absorbed by the sea.

The search for the Carbon cycle was initially done by Joseph Priestly and Antoine Lavoisier, and Humphrey Davy interpreted it. This is a bio-geochemical cycle by which carbon is interchangeable with the biosphere, the Earth's atmosphere, the Earth's atmosphere, the hydrosphere and the Earth's atmosphere.

It is one of the most important cycles of the Earth and allows recycling and recycling of carbon with the biosphere and all its organisms.

1. Biological carbon cycle:- The process of emitting carbon dioxide through photosynthesis by autotrophs such as plants or algae (algae) is called the biological carbon cycle.

2. Geological Carbon Cycle:- In this cycle, the mobilization of carbon occurs between rocks and minerals, seawater and atmosphere. It is mainly driven by earth's tectonic plates and geological processes.
