Merge Deposition (meteorology)[edit]

I see no point in having an article that describes the same process in different fields if the content of both articles is hardly a stub. -- EmperorBMA|話す 20:15, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

However they are different things.

Both refer to conversion from a fluid dynamic to a solid dynamic and both precipitate on a nucleus of some sort.

One is describing a phase change phenomona of a single compound from gas to solid with no liquid phase. The opposite of sublimation. The other is describing a precipitate from a mixture, if the precipitate sublimates when it goes back into the solution, I might agree, otherwise they are different processes.

Why, exactly, is the other one termed 'meteorology'? I learned about deposition in Chemistry, and it was refering to the process of Iodine going from a gas to a solid. In all the university Chemistry courses I've taken to get my Chemical Engineering degree, I've seen it used more to describe state changes than what this article describes. Just my two cents, but it would be logical to include the 'meteorological' definition in this article, considering how widely used the term is in Chemistry.

The physical and the chemical deposition processes are different. I've changed deposition (meteorology) into deposition (physics) in order to distinguish between the two.Melamed katz 01:44, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

pH scale is something to refer to help on measuring acidic items(e.g. soil thats acidic can be measured). if any other concerns please go to or com —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:51, 9 February 2009 (UTC) By Amanda —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:37, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Deposition in Accordance to Chemistry[edit]

Deposition in Chemistry is the phase change in which matter in gas state is changed into solid state. Or are there two meanings or terminologies? -Bon_062 8 August 2010

Merge with Deposition (Phase Transition)[edit]

This should probably link to or be merged with —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:34, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

I've put a hatnote in to link to Deposition (phase transition), but some of the text seems to be about Deposition (geology), and also Precipitation (chemistry). Further cleanup might be useful. Djr32 (talk) 21:01, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
