Previous discussion without header[edit]

The Triasic terminator is 213mya per several reputable sources, one being the USGS and another the Canadian Museum. 1)USGS:

2)Canadian Museum:

You may want to review your http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manicouagan_Reservoir. text. The Impact 212+/-2mya does coincide with the Trassic terminator date 213mya.

Dang. This thing DOES look like Strong Sad. UndeniablyJordan 03:21, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, they even made a joke about it in an easter egg of the new strong bad email

Split articles?[edit]

Most impact craters have their own articles. But while this is one of the larger impact craters on Earth, its article is tacked onto the reservoir article, which is important in itself. I'm giving notice that I intend to separate into two linked articles, in the process beefing up the impact article with more references. --Zamphuor 15:32, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Strong Sad[edit]

No mention that it looks exactly like his head? It even has the disturbing soft-serve flip! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 75.72.21.221 (talk) 18:17, 14 April 2007 (UTC).

It was here for a while, but that is better suited to Strong Sad's article. --Jnelson09 20:38, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

They even shows a comparison in sbemail 146 in an easter egg!

1,950 square metres? It's much larger than that. That's only a couple of acres.

How to pronounce it?[edit]

I was disappointed that there wasn't any hint how to pronounce "Manicouagan", and that I had to go to http://www.pronouncenames.com/pronounce/manicouagan to find something. Maybe this could be added? (Otherwise, good job with the article.)DavidHobby (talk) 02:55, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Original size and shape of lake?[edit]

I'm curious about the original size and shape of this lake. Was the Daniel-Johnson dam the first human damming of this lake? Did the lake exist before, or was it a series of lakes? --Neurogeek (talk) 17:08, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

The previous two lakes looked like this: http://www.staff.science.uu.nl/~rutte101/stuff/manicouagan/1962MapManicouaganMushalaganLakes.jpg taken from http://abioticdesignstudio.blogspot.com/2014/01/the-eye-of-sauron-reservoir-manicouagan.html I've seen old survey maps showing it. It would make a good addition to the page.24.12.61.229 (talk) 04:26, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

Merge with Manicouagan crater[edit]

Judging on #Split articles? above, Manicouagan crater was split from here back in 2007 by Zamphuor, but I don't think it was necessary, because the crater and the reservoir are largely coterminous, and readers would be better served by a single article. The crater article does not seem to contain much more information beyond what is found here (mostly the "Hypothetical multiple impact event" section that could be gracefully merged here), and just being a large and important crater does not require having a separate article. By quick perusing of {{Impact cratering on Earth}}, most impact crater articles are either at "X Lake" or "X Crater", but are not split like this one. No such user (talk) 14:30, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

I went ahead and merged the articles. No such user (talk) 14:14, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
