Biogeochemical Cycles

On the hydrosphere, lithosphere, and more.

Hydrosphere

All the components of water present on earth include bodies of water such as oceans and include the presence of water in the atmosphere e.g. vapour, hail, rain etc.

Lithosphere

The rigid upper layer of the earths crust consisting of soil and rocks.
