Storyboard Text

  • Uplift
  • Erosion
  • Runoff
  • The phosphorus is locked in stone, waiting to be released.
  • Eutrophication
  • Over time, by wind, water or a combination of both, the rock slowly disintegrates and erodes.
  • As the rock erodes, the phosphorus is released into the nearby river.
  • Decomposition
  • The phosphorus flows downstream, if there is too much, the plants and bacteria in the water grow too much so taht fish and other nimals don't get enough oxygen to breathe.
  • The phosphorus is absorbed into the soil, which then is consumed by plants, and then by animals.
  • Assimilation
  • Once the animal dies, its body decomposes and the phosphorus is absorbed back into the ground and will later be absorbed into ther plants.
