This report discusses the engineering aspects of selecting or
designing devices for lake aeration or mixing. A summary of frequently
used aeration and/or mixing devices is presented. Bubble dynamics and
oxygen transfer principles are described to provide the reader with an
understanding of the basic processes and mechanics of aeration. The
basic design parameters for a lake aerator are presented. The principles
and parameters discussed are applied to a metalimnetic aerator
design. Experiments performed to determine the external flow characteristics
of a meta1imnetic aerator are presented.
