Water and Carbon Cycle: resources for A Level Geography

The Water and Carbon Cycles are both important in maintaining life on Earth. Human activity has had an impact on the functioning of these two cycles, and this topic explores how and why this has happened. From exploring the stores of carbon around the world to the impact of human activity on drainage basins, this topic will look at some of the most important changes in physical geography.

The Water and Carbon Cycles both have impacts that you don’t initially consider. You’ll learn all about feedback cycles, systems concepts within geography, and and how water and carbon are transferred and stored throughout the world. You’ll also look at interesting case studies of river drainage basins and human impacts on the carbon cycle.
