This is because fluoride at subsaturation levels is not easily filtered.
These levels can be more extreme than the subsaturation concentrations found under darkness (Roberts et al.
9), in such a way that under conditions far from equilibrium (subsaturation), the alkaline feldspar dissolution rate shows an inverse dependence with respect to the contents of dissolved Al, whereas under conditions close to the solution-feldspar equilibrium, the dissolution rate is inversely controlled by the concentration in solution of the components of these minerals (Gautier et al, 1994).
(2001) and Harder and Pomeroy (2013) also illustrated the critical importance of subsaturation. Temperature alone is not enough to develop overall criteria for the edges of the nonfreezing rain transition region and low moisture content drives the warmer edge to higher temperatures.
