The Carbon Cycle
A simplified model of the carbon cycle that shows the sinks and sources of carbon via CO2 and CaCO3 transports. However, in this version of this argon mass balance also the fluxes between various reservoirs are given and the estimated mass in billion metric tons. The model is constructed using information from "Our Changing Planet" by Fred T. Mackenzie, 1998.
