What does carbon turn into after it reaches the atmosphere?

    Carbon does not simply convert into something else when it reaches the atmosphere, which is why there is a danger of it building up in the atmosphere if it is continued to be released by burning fossil fuels.  Carbon can be absorbed by differenty types of carbon sinks:  water, trees and other vegetation, the biosphere, and the lithosphere.  Carbon is exchanged throughout the different “-speres” by processes, which are geological and biological in nature.
