Biogeochemical cycles are pathways that chemicals take as they move between living organisms and environment. Some well-defined biogeochemical cycles include the water cycle, the carbon cycle and the nitrogen cycle. A biogeochemical cycle is made up of compartments or pools (e.g. the atmosphere, the oceans, ...

Because geology and chemistry have major roles in the study of these processes , the recycling of inorganic matter between living organisms and their nonliving environment are called biogeochemical cycles. The six aforementioned elements are used by organisms in a variety of ways. Hydrogen and oxygen are found in ...

The main types of biogeochemical cycles explained: the water cycle, the nitrogen cycle and the carbon cycle. ... 4. Why is the sun the “motor” of the water cycle? The sun can be considered the motor of the water cycle because the transformation of liquid water into water vapor depends on its energy. Therefore, the sun 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. This process is required for the building of all organic compounds and involves the participation of many of the earth's key forces.

For most of these nutrients, how efficiently these elements cycle from the organic component back to the inorganic reserviors determines how much is available to organisms over the short term. This cycling involves the decomposition of organic matter back into inorganic nutrients. The major reservoirs for all metabolically ...

Life is composed of many chemical elements, which have to be available in the right amounts, the right concentrations, and the right ratios to one another. If these conditions are not met, then life is limited. The study of chemical availability and biogeochemical cycles the paths chemicals take through Earthss major ...

Because geology and chemistry have major roles in the study of this process, the recycling of inorganic matter between living organisms and their environment is called a biogeochemical cycle. Water contains hydrogen and oxygen, which is essential to all living processes. The hydrosphere is the area of ...
