By simulating multiple events on an Al/Fe material over a period of several days, we have observed significant increases in sorption capacity during intervals between leaching events that were attributed to sorbed P being converted to more strongly bound forms--a process that resulted in more sorption sites becoming available prior to the next leaching event (Hsieh et al.
