Article title

Processes occurring in the soil and fluorine

Title variants
Languages of publication
Fluorine is in the dynamic balance of two geochemical processes, enrichment and leaching. These reflect the adsorption and desorption of fluoride by clay minerals, respectively. The two geochemical processes of fluorine in soil are influenced by interacting factors, including the geochemical characteristics of soil and clay minerals, pH and sanity of soil solutions, climate, grazing and agriculture activities.
