Seasonality in the fluoride concentrations of pasture grass subject to ambient airborne fluorides

Seasonality in the fluoride concentrations of pasture grass subject to ambient airborne fluorides

Environmental Pollution Series B Chemical & Physical 9(3): 163-178

High winter and low summer levels in grass fluoride concentrations are commonly attributed to growth dilution. A large number of grass fluoride records obtained from routine monitoring around 2 different major sources of industrial airborne fluoride pollution were considered and there were no real indications of seasonality. Further investigations carried out on grass fluoride, airborne fluorides and meteorological data indicated that grass fluoride levels were positively related to the previous 7 days' ambient airborne fluorides levels. Meteorological, microclimatic and biological factors were directly or indirectly influencing grass fluoride levels.
