carbon cycle

Storyboard Text

  • atmospheric co2 comes from volcanoes, power plants, burning fossil fuels, almost everything
  • co2 dissolves in water, the colder the water, the more it dissolves
  • marine plant photosynthesis help remove the co2 from the water and turns it into oxygen
  • dead animals fall down to the ocean floor and form sediments, co2 gets stored in the sediments
  • sediments pile up and form fossil/petroleum fuels over millions of years then get pulled up by wells
  • petroleum gets turned into gasoline and fuels cars, along with other mechanical objects
