    Sammanfattning

    In this brief communication we provide an estimate of the part of the incident solar energy used for oxygen evolution as well as the time, in years, needed for the generation of the present amount of molecular oxygen in the biosphere by photosynthesis on land and in the ocean. We find this to be ≈4,000 yr. We also find that the ocean produces 22% more oxygen than the land surface.
