Atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations, 2004. The data reveal the seasonal changes in CO2. Red regions are producing CO2, blue regions are absorbing it. In the winter, much CO2 is released as plants are not photosynthesising as much, and organic matter decays. The pattern is reversed by the summer, where plants...

Animation of the carbon cycle, the processes by which carbon is exchanged between the atmosphere, biosphere, oceans and rocks. Carbon is the primary building block of life on Earth. Here, purple arrows indicate the uptake of carbon, while yellow arrows indicate the release of carbon. On land, plants remove carbon...

Cyanobacteria bloom in a lake
See details
produced by Science Photo Library (London, England: Science Photo Library, 2014), 29 secs
Bloom of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) at the edge of a lake. Blooms such as this may be caused by fertiliser runoff. Some cyanobacteria produce toxic chemicals, and such blooms can severely impact other life in the lake.
