Water Cycle

The water cycle is the process of water circulating between earths oceans, atmosphere and land, involving precipitation as rain and snow. It drains into the rivers and streams and goes back to the atmosphere by evaparation and transpiration

Chloride, Sulfate, Iron, Manganese, Fluoride, Carbon, Vegetation root, Aquatic plants, Microorganisms

The humans impact it by generating hydroelectricity, irrigation, deforestation, green house affect, water pollution and also the chemicals in the water.

Nitrogen is the biggest element in the air. It is a building block for proteins and nuclei acids like DNA and it important for all life. The cycle is very complicated biochemical cycle and which nitrogen converts from atmospheric form N2 into a useful biological process.

Nitrogen Fixation: N2, H2, NH3

Ammonification: NH4

Nitrification: NO2, NO3

Denitrification: N2

Organic N+O2-CO2+H2O+NH3+energy

Releasing to much nitrogen in the air

Carbon Cycle

the series of processes by which carbon compounds are inter converted in the environment, chiefly involving the incorporation of carbon dioxide into living tissue by photosynthesis and its return to the atmosphere through respiration, the decay of dead organisms, and the burning of fossil fuels. "Carbon Cycle.", n.d. Web. 16 Mar. 2017.

C6H12O6 (organic matter) + 6O2 ⇒ 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy

Most carbon in the terrestrial biosphere is organic carbon. Organic: Calcium carbonate

movement of phosphorus through the spheres of the ecosystem that is through lithosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere. Atmosphere does not have an important role in the phosphorus cycle as phosphorus and phosphorus based compounds are usually in solid form in typical temperature range. The lack of phosphate results in slow growing or stunted plant growth. If there is more of phosphate in the plant, there is excess growth seen in the some algae.

Human impact: The phosphate present in the water sediments at bottom of water body and phosphate from the sewage is not removed
