THE ABOVE IS WRONG:



Water cycle:

- This cycle's largest reservoir is ocean water

- Transpiration is a major flux in this cycle



Nitrogen cycle:

- Nitrification is a major flux in this cycle

- This cycle's largest reservoir is the atmosphere



Carbon cycle:

- This cycle is significantly affected by the extraction of fossil fuels

- Photosynthesis is a major flux in this cycle



Phosphorus cycle:

- This cycle is affected by the release of detergents in treated wastewater.

- The weathering of rock is the major flux in this cycle

That's wrong.



Water:



Transpiration

Reservoir is ocean



Carbon:

Photosynthesis

Extraction



Nitrogen:

Nitrification

Atmosphere reservoir



Phosphorous:

Detergents

Weathering
