What are processes in the carbon cycle?
Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration
Photosynthesis and cellular respiration
Photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Without these two things the world would not be alive!
photosynthesis and decomposition
The two biological proccess are reperation and photosynthesis. I know this because i had this on my homework packet this week for science class. (7th grade)
Fossilization is the process where dead organisms (animals and plants) get decomposed (broken up) by bacteria and fungi and then covered in layers of sediments (dirt etc).… The pressure of the layers of sediment will result in the decomposed organism becoming a liquid (this takes millions of years). The liquid is crude oil (Gas and coal is also formed but they have different sources, Coal = plants and Gas is produced from the crude oil, basically the fumes from the oil). This is where the carbon cycle comes in. The fossilization has produced fossil fuels which we burn, which results in the release of Carbon Dioxide. This is one of the main contributors of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Photosynthesis & Respiration, Decomposition Transpiration transpiration Transpiration. This answer depends on the options you were given. If the choices were photosynthesis, …burning of fossil fuels, and the decomposition of plants and animals accompanied by transpiration, then transpiration is your answer. Transpiration, unlike the rest of the processes, is not part of the carbon cycle, but in fact the water cycle. Respiration Transpiration transpiration.
Biological process, Geochemical process, Mixed bigeochemical process and human activities
Respiration in an organism is linked to the carbon cycle but not the nitrogen cycle.
I think that photosynthesis is the process that is the basis of the carbon cycle. :-)
The Carbon - Oxygen Cycle Note: The carbon and oxygen cycles are independent but very closely related. The two cycles have been combined in the assignment below. So…me of the information that you find on the carbon cycle will not contain information on the oxygen cycle. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is taken in by plants to be used in the process of photosynthesis. During photosynthesis carbon based compounds are produced from this CO2 and the water (H2O) that is absorbed by the roots of the plant. Plants give off oxygen (O2) as a waste product of photosynthesis. When animals consume plants or other animals they take in the carbon based compounds. Animals inhale the O2 given off by plants and exhale CO2, a waste product of cellular respiration. Plants also take in CO2 and release O2 during the process of cellular respiration. The activities described above are just a part of the interactions which take place in the carbon - oxygen cycle
The carbon cycle is a biogeochemical cycle. That suggests three major types of processes: biological, geological, and chemical. But it's probably more accurate and simpler… to think of two major processes: biochemical and geochemical which can be shortened into just "BIOLOGICAL" and "GEOLOGICAL" Biological means "involving life". It comes first in the term "biogeochemical", but the carbon cycle preceded the evolution of the earliest forms of life on our planet. Important biological processes include photosynthesis, respiration, and decay. Photosynthesis is the way that living things absorb CO2. Respiration and decay are some of the ways that living things can release carbon back into their surrounding environments. Geological (involving rocks) processes came first. Many forms of rock will react with carbon dioxide when exposed to air and water. This is often referred to as a form of "weathering" of rock surfaces, but it is just as easily imagined as rock being dissolved by a mild (carbonic) acid. It is also part of a more general geological process called erosion which eventually washes the rock as sediment into the seas where it can be compacted and cemented into sedimentary rock. Tectonic forces can push this rock under continental plates where it can be metamorphosed and or melted. Eventually this rock (and its carbon) can be expelled back into the atmosphere via a volcanic eruption. There are some other biochemical and geochemical processes involved in the carbon cycle. Combustion (burning) of organic material releases carbon into the surrounding air and soil. Marine animals also use carbon to help form their shells. These shells can later join the carbon/rock cycle as limestone or marble (after more geochemical changes involved in metamorphosis).
The two cellular processes that are involved in the oxygen-carbon cycle would be cellular respiration and photosynthesis. These are processes done by both plants and anima…ls.
One process is decomposition is when dead animals are turned into fossil fuels. Cellular respiration is when decomposition goes into CO2 in the atmosphere. Photosynthesis …is when CO2 goes into the atmosphere and goes to land plants.
