Here are four related tags and their current question count:

Here are three related questions about them:

  1. As terms and as techniques, spectrometry is distinct from spectroscopy, but I am not sure we need both tags to distribute questions between. Would there be any harm in consolidating them under spectroscopy?
  2. Any harm in consolidating spectrum and spectra under the plural form? (singular/plural issue)
  3. Any benefits or harm to then (eventually) consolidating spectroscopy and spectra?

I think that synonymization might be the thing to do, but honestly I don't understand the options and tradeoffs to propose anything with confidence.

There is some fairly obvious re-tagging that could be done right away (I'll put a list here in a while) but I didn't want to start doing that until some discussion here first.

All of them have a substantial number of questions, but you are right that spectrum should be consolidated under spectra. Otherwise, I think we should probably leave them be, but spectrometry needs a tag excerpt.

  • $\begingroup$ okay I'll add a spectrometry tag excerpt, and double check that each of those 10 questions actually meant to use it. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jul 22 '19 at 12:48

    $\begingroup$ @uhoh I went ahead and merged spectrum into spectra and created a synonym. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Jul 22 '19 at 12:52
