Exchange between Hydrosphere and Biota

This flow is defined as SHB = s(H2O)?qHB(H2O), where qHB(H2O) is the annual flow of water consumed by biota, and s(H2O) = 3.89JK- g- is the specific entropy of liquid water at T = 288 K. We assume that qHB(H2O) is equal to the annual transpiration of global vegetation, 4.8 x 1019g H2O. Then SHB = 3.89 x 4.8 x 1019 = 1.87 x 1020J K-1 yr-1.
