The Sulfur Cycle
Transcript of The Sulfur Cycle
non-metallic element. Most of Earth's sulfur is stored
underground in rocks and minerals Process of the Sulfur Cycle The weathering of rocks releasing
sulfur starts the Sulfur Cycle. So the sulfur comes in contact with
the air which converts it into sulfate. The plants and microorganisms take up the sulfate and this converts it into organic form. Some of the sulfate runs-off
into the bodys of water. Then the sulfate is taken into the air
by the evaporation by water. Volcanoes/factories release a very
large amount of sulfate into the air. Finally the rest of the sulfur
comes back down through rain fall. Ever since humans built factories
1/3 of all sulfur emmited into the
air is produced by factories. Other Facts Even ocean phytoplankton releases sulfur
into the air. Then some of the sulfur
is released into the atmosphere. Sulfur is also found in every living organism For example... Proteins Vitamins And hormones. And unlike the Nitrogen and Carbon cycle while
in the atmosphere and lithosphere it has major
reservoirs (chamber of water) which forms clouds. http://www.morning-earth.org/graphic-E/Cycle-Nutrients.html#sulfur http://www.britannica.com/facts/5/589444/sulfur-cycle-as-discussed-in-biosphere http://www.enviroliteracy.org/article.php/1348.html Amino Acid
