The Earth’s geochemical cycle is the flow of chemical substances between:

a. Atmosphere b. Hydrosphere c. lithosphere

37. During the development of the Earth’s atmosphere, the temperatures remained within a moderate range because the carbon cycle includes a natural sink - a process that removes excess carbon from the atmosphere.

38. The carbon cycle has 4 basic stages. Describe each stage.

rainfall scrubs CO2 out of the air, producing carbonic acid (H2CO3), a weak acid.

this solution reacts on contact with silicate rocks to release

calcium and other cations and leave behind carbonate and

bicarbonate ions dissolved in the water.

This solution is washed into the oceans by rivers, and then calcium carbonate (CaCO3), also known as limestone, is precipitated in sediments. Over long time scales, oceanic crust containing limestone sediments is forced downward into Earth's mantle.

Eventually, the limestone heats up and turns the limestone back

into CO2, which travels back up to the surface with magma.

Volcanic activity then returns CO2 to the atmosphere.

39. This balance between CO2outgassing from volcanoes and CO2 conversion to calcium carbonate through silicate weatheringhas kept the Earth's climate stable through most of its history.

40. Why is Venus a runaway greenhouse while the Earth has fluctuated but has adjusted?

Venus has no water on its surface, so it has no medium to dissolve CO2, form carbonic acid, and react with silicate rocks. As a result volcanism on Venus continues to emit CO2 without any carbon sink, so it accumulates in the atmosphere.
