Question: Outline the relationship between the water cycle and the carbon cycle within the atmosphere

My answer: Within the carbon cycle, biomass is a store of both carbon dioxide and water. Plants require CO2 for photosynthesis therefore releasing oxygen which balances atmospheric carbon. Photosynthesis also requires the input of water via interception. Likewise, the atmosphere is a major store of carbon and water in the form of water vapour. Water is able to dissolve and carry CO2 which leads to acidic rain.

Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thank you :smile:
