- n. Plural form of oxyhydroxide.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The CO2 release in this temperature region correlates with the H2O release indicating that the carbonate-containing compound could have been formed through the adsorption of atmospheric CO2 onto the surface of the finely-crystalline oxyhydroxides and subsequently incorporated into the crystal structure.
Oxidized sediments also protect deep groundwater through the ability of ferric oxyhydroxides to adsorb As. Basin-scale groundwater flow modelling suggests that, over large regions, deep hand-pumped wells for domestic supply may be secure against As.invasion for hundreds of years.
But the iron compounds that are there, for example nanophase ferric oxides / oxyhydroxides, are capable of absorbing UV radiation.
