My journey began by getting released into the atmosphere and becoming a carbon atom that has two oxygen atoms.
Then I traveled to the surface ocean by decomposing marine life, diffusing from the atmosphere, or circulating water from the deep ocean. Since cold water absorbs carbon faster 90 gigatons of carbon is taken in each year.
I went to the Deep Ocean next because of dead and decaying matter that comes from the surface ocean and ends up in the deep ocean for hundreds of years.
The next place I traveled to was Marine Life. I got here by being consumed by Phytoplankton through the process of Photosynthesis. I am here since marine life can't survive without me.
The second to last place I traveled to was Land Plants. I was taken out of the atmosphere by a plant through photosynthesis. Here I became a building block for a plants.
My final destination was the soil since the plant I was in died. I became a part of the Detritus whish is decomposing plants and animals, but as bacteria and fungi broke down the Detritus I got sent back into the atmosphere.
