Energy cycles by Mind Map: Energy cycles

1. Phosphorus is an essential element to all life. It is an important part of the ATP molecule that stores and gives every cell its energy

2. the series of processes by which carbon compounds are interconverted 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.

3. Bioaccumulation is the accumulation of substances, such as pesticides, or other chemicals in an organism. Bioaccumulation occurs when an organism absorbs a substance at a rate faster than that at which the substance is lost by catabolism and excretion.

4. The Coriolis effect

4.1. The Coriolis effect is an effect whereby a mass moving in a rotating system experiences a force

5. high pressure and low pressure systems

5.1. A low pressure system is a weather system surrounding an area of low pressure (low mass of air above) that is surrounded by air moving inwards and counter-clockwise. Low pressure systems are usually characterized by clouds and precipitation. High pressure systems are the opposite.

6. how the water cycle works

6.1. Heat from the sun makes sea water evaporate when the evaporation is rising to the clouds, larger drops fall s rain but on condensation clouds of ice crystals fall down and it melts to the river and the river's water is carried back to the sea

7. how humans effect the water cycle

7.1. Humans impact the water cycle by polluting the water in rivers, streams ect...

8. how the Nitrogen cycle works

8.1. The nitrogen cycle is the biogeochemical cycle by which nitrogen is converted into multiple chemical forms as it circulates among the atmosphere, terrestrial, and marine ecosystems

9. how the carbon cycle works

10. how living things depend on non-living things

10.1. The difference between non living and living are each don't have  either characteristics of each of these features. Non living is  something which does not have a life form, while living is when  something has a life form

11. how humans effect the carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus cycle

11.1. humans effect the nitrogen cycle by Nitrogen Fertilizer , Deforestation Fossil Fuels burning

11.2. Humans affect the carbon cycle through the exhalation of carbon dioxide, the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation and other poor agricultural practices.

11.3. Humans affect the phosphorus cycle primarily through the use of synthetic fertilizer

12. living things break down other living things to recycle nutrients I nutrient cycles

12.1. Nutrient cycling is one of the most important processes that occur in an ecosystem. The nutrient cycle describes the use, movement, and recycling of nutrients in the environment.

13. what is Bioaccumulation

14. why do top predators have more toxin than things on the food chain?

14.1. the toxic chemicals that get acquired in the bottom level of the food chain gets retained to the top level

15. 2 how wind works

15.1. 2- wind moves from hot places to cold places

16. solar energy budget

16.1. the solar energy budget is the geothermal heat flux from the Earth's interior

17. how does the solar energy effect the water cycle

17.1. Solar energy provides the heat needed to evaporate water which makes the water cycle possible

18. how the phosphorus cycle works
