Merge proposal[edit]

There seems little in the new article which is not more thoroughly covered in this one. PamD (talk) 16:10, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Which one??? Andrewjlockley (talk) 23:24, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Assuming you mean oxygenation (environmental), there's a much better one for that to merge with: oxygen saturation. Andrewjlockley (talk) 23:28, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Why was this moved?[edit]

The subject "water aeration" is used extensively (Google,scholar) - while the title "water oxygenation" is almost unused in comparison (Google,Scholar). Was there any discussion on this, which didn't survive the move? --Kim D. Petersen (talk) 22:25, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

I've cut all the speculative (and i do mean speculative here, since it seems to be based on very limited references) geoengineering stuff, for both being WP:OR and extremely undue weight to a few (very few (<10)) researchers work - which AJL just seems to have reinserted here, since Hydraulic geoengineering was to be (and now is) AfD'd. --Kim D. Petersen (talk) 22:29, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Water oxygenation would encompass processes that don't involve air insertion. However, if aeration is the more common term I suggest moving it back. Andrewjlockley (talk) 00:55, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Merge from Pond aeration[edit]

Pond aeration has recently been greatly expanded , mostly by a single editor. Despite the sterling work put in, it would seem much more logical to have a single article on water aeration since Pond aeration, Lake aeration, Lagoon aeration, Swamp aeration and any variety that can be thought of are all basically the same thing - getting air (and thus Oxygen) into water. As it stands , Pond aeration looks very much like a content fork of this article and should be merged according to WP policies on content forks. I see no problem with using much of the new stuff at Pond aeration in this article which will conserve the recent good work of the principal editor of Pond aeration.
I therefore Support a merge.  Velella  Velella Talk   14:13, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

In the absence of any dissension or any comment whatsoever over 3 weeks, I have merged relevant paragraphs and converted Pond aeration into a redirect to here.  Velella  Velella Talk   14:15, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Headlines seem somewhat backwards[edit]

In the section about different aeration types, it seems like there are three main headings, "Natural aeration", "Surface aeration" and "Subsurface aeration", which each have sub-headings that are more emphasised than the main headings. I'm not sure how to fix it, but it's wrong at the moment. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jezzamon (talkcontribs) 10:39, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Fixed.Thanks  Velella  Velella Talk   10:57, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
