The Carbon Cycle
By Logan Templin
What is The Carbon Cycle?
The carbon cycle is one of the major biogeochemical cycles describing the flow of essential elements from the environent to living organisms and back to the environment again.Carbon is an element found in nature it can be found in animals, plants, soil, the ocean, and us. If carbon gets in the atmosphere it warms up our planet.
Surface Ocean and Deep Ocean
Some of the carbon dioxide stays as dissolved gas, but much of it gets turned into other things. Photosynthesis by tiny marine plants in the sunlit surface waters turns the carbon into organic matter. Many organisms use carbon to make calcium carbonate, a building material of shells and skeletons.
