The Carbon Cycle

  • Carbon is the backbone element of all organic polymers, and we are ourselves known to be carbon-based life forms.
  • The movement of CO2 and other carbon compounds through biological components is known as the fast carbon cycle.
  • The abiotic components like rocks, soil and oceans also circulate carbon compounds taking as much as 200 million years and is known as the slow carbon cycle.
