Vertical mixing within a lake or reservoir to totally or partially eliminate separate layers of temperature, plant, or animal life.
 
The development of vertical mixing within a lake or reservoir to eliminate (either totally or partially) separate layers of temperature, plant, or animal life. This vertical mixing can be caused by mechanical means (pumps) or through the use of forced air diffusers which release air into the lower layers of the reservoir.
