What is, the difference, if any, between salination and salinisation (saliniziation)? --AndreasPraefcke 15:24, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
- I think the first describes "what the condition is now" and the second is a verb "the act of salting soil". 126.96.36.199 07:47, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
- As used within WP, they are synonymous.
I advocate moving the page, tosoil salinization, whichgets 58,800 results in a Google search, plus an additional 18,800 results for the close variant, "soil salinisation". These 77,600 results are significantly higher than only 16,200 results for "soil salination", especially considering the multiplier effect of wikipedia content emulators. -- Paleorthid 21:23, 5 September 2006 (UTC) An alternative rename,As currently posted at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Soil/Worklist, is to rename the articleI advocate moving the page, to soil salinity. The term gets 367,000 results in a Google search. -- Paleorthid 21:37, 5 September 2006 (UTC), updated 01:33, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

The artcile seems to imply soil salinization is necessarily bad, which is not true. Soil salinization can be a good thing - plants cannot live without sufficient sodium salts in their soil, for example. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mcampbell422 (talk • contribs).
- It's true that plants may need small amounts of various salts. However, "soil trace nutrients for plants" (therefore info about beneficial as well as detrimental amounts and balances) is not the topic of this article. "Soil salination is the accumulation of free salts to such an extent that it leads to degradation of soils and vegetation" is the stated working definition of the term "soil salination" for purposes of this article. That is almost a bad thing by definition, and certainly excludes the levels of sodium you are considering. DMacks 07:17, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
I live in an ecosystem that requires high concentrations of salt in the soil. If the salts were removed the ecosystem would collapse. Wiki skylace 16:20, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
So why don't you add something about that to the article. Rosetta Nov 2007
Article rename (2008)
This article addresses a condition (soil salinity, dryland salinity), a process (soil salinisation / salinization), and a type (salt affected soil, saline soil). The term used for the article title, soil salination is not in common usage. Accordingly, the current title impairs usability. I propose renaming the article to soil salinity. Feedback to date indicates this is a non-controversial move. -- Paleorthid (talk) 03:32, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Solutions to soil salinity
I came to this page as I wanted to know how to reverse the process or lower the soil salinity. Anyone think we should add a section on some processes that will lower soil salinity? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:26, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

|* Rename to soil salinity. The condition of soil salinity is more fundamental than the processes that cause, prevent and moderate it. It is the most familiar of the candidate terms covering the subject area. -- Paleorthid (talk) 03:42, 6 January 2008 (UTC)|
