I have been reading about the carbon cycle and the book i am reading talks about these type of movement
ocean to atmopsher
atmosphere to ocean
ocean surface to ocean deep
ocean deep to ocean surface
ocean surface to ocean life
ocean life to ocean surface
soil to atmosphere
land-based-life to soil
land-based-life to atmopshere (natural)
land-based-life to atmosphere (deforestation)
atmmosphere to land based life
fossil fuels to atmosphere
I don't understand the processes involved in some of these steps
How does carbon move between the atmosphere and the ocean? Does that just mean the CO2 dissolving in and out of the ocean?
what abuot from ocean surface to ocean life? does that mean photsynthesis by plant life in the oceans?
how does carbon move from soil to the atmosphere? Is that just decay of plant and animal life?
Land-based-life to atmosphere (natural) is presumably respiration?
How does deforestation transfer CO2 to the atmoshere? I can see how this occurs indirectly as less trees means less photosynthesis means more co2 in the atmosphere but this is not a direct transfer from land-based life to the atmosphere via deforrestation. does it mean the burning of trees?
