Geochemical Cycle

  • Naotatsu Shikazono


Carbon cycle in earth system is divided into short-term cycle (biochemica l cycle) and long-term cycle (geochemical cycle).

The mass and concentration of carbon in each reservoir (e.g. atmosphere , ocean) are calculated based on the output and input flux as a function of time. Then, the simulation results (e.g. atmospheric CO2 concentration) are compared with geological and geochemica l data (e.g. BLAG model , K-S model). It is stressed plate tectonics takes as important role for long-term atmospheric CO2 change.
