Water erodes rocks and limestone and carries carbon away.
Atmospheric N2 is converted to NO3-1 and NH3.
Makes N2 again.
Water removes dissolved materials in soil by moving downwards.
Decomposing releases NO3-1 into the soil.
NH3 goes to NO3 and NO2
Formed by volcanoes.
FOrmed by erosion and lithification.
