Literature Review: A thorough literature review revealed that the reaeration rate equations used were specific to the conditions they were developed and that they were not universally applicable.

Hypothesis: Solubility of a floating solid at the gas-water interface was related to reaeration rate.

Experiment: Using glucose as a floating solid, conducted laboratory experiments and developed a relationship between solubility and reaeration rate.

Conclusion: Further research and field study are needed before the method can be used in the field.
