Chapter 56 :
56.1 :
Due to the constant creation of O2 earth is not in equilibrium which is a good thing
upwelling: The surfaceward movement of nutrient-rich, cooler water from deeper
layers of the ocean.
Turnovers = spring and fall = nutrients evenly distributed in the water
troposphere: The lowest atmospheric zone, reaching upward from the Earths
surface approximately 17 km in the tropics and subtropics but only to about 10 km
at higher latitudes. The zone in which virtually all the water vapor in the
atmosphere is located.
stratosphere: The upper part of Earths atmosphere, above the troposphere; extends
from approximately 18 kilometers upward to approximately 50 kilometers above the
surface.
56.2 :
The rate of assimilation of energy by plants growing in a particular area.
gross primary production: The total energy captured by plants growing in a
particular area.
net primary production: Energy avaiable to organism that eat primary
producers(plants). Total photosynthesis minus respiration by plants.
56.3 :
biogeochemical cycle: Movement of elements through living organisms and the
physical environment.
The movement of water transfers many chemical elements between the
atmosphere, land, fresh waters, and oceans.
Fire is a powerful agent that speeds the cycling of chemical elements.
hydrological cycle: The movement of water from the oceans to the atmosphere, to the
soil, and back to the oceans.
Water cycle : More water goes into the ocean than what evaporates
Carbone dioxide : CO2 is released faster than being disolved. plants, exhaling, ocean,
