wines are aerated during the winemaking process when they are poured from one barrel to another, in order to introduce oxygen and help them soften. Wines are also aerated by decanting and swirling in the glass.
In the soil, as in compost, air is necessary for most beneficial soil organisms, providing them with the oxygen and nitrogen. Roots, like microorganisms, must also breath and would be suffocated without air. Aerated soil allows for the easy flow of air around soil particles. In addition, the pockets and channels that allow the air to circulate also allow water to reach a greater percentage of soil particles. Working the soil when it is not too dry or wet will help aerate it; double digging is particularly effective. Adding organic material is also helpful, as it helps to break up soils heavy in clay.
Exposure of material to air so that dissolved gases are removed; the process by which air is added to a substance.
