The hydrated aluminium oxide ([Al.sub.2][O.sub.3] x [H.sub.2]O) produced during pitting has a much larger volume than the corroded metal and therefore the aggregate corrosion product from a pit is seen as a small white nodule (see Figure 1).
Phosphate Reserves: Various chemical methods have been devised for determining soil P: (i) Dilute acids dissolve Ca phosphates except apatites; (ii) Concentrated acids dissolve apatites; (iii) Fluorides displace P from the surface of hydrated aluminium oxides and subsequent treatment with alkali displaces it from the surface of hydrated iron oxides; (iv) Reduction solution and iron chelating agent will remove P from below the surface of [Fe.sub.2][O.sub.3] films.
