I suspect tbinary was a typo for ebinary, and I think they are referring to eclipsing binaries. I think both tags should be replaced with eclipsing-star-systems.

Update: There's a catch to being able to do this right away. See discussion in the comments. These definitely should be merged. The only reason I could see for having a distinction would be for distinguishing between [Earth] atmospheric effects on observation and the study of atmospheres on other planets. That said, atmosphere is currently being used for ...

I was the OP of the question that uhoh mentioned in the question and I just used the "resource" tag to search for questions similar to mine. The presence of two similar tags of the same meaning is just misleading and may cause the creation of more duplicate and redundant questions. So, unless the two tags do have different meanings, is it possible ...

These seem to be the questions tagged measurement that are about some kind of measuring. I think that for all except "measure the age of the universe" the observational-astronomy tag would be fine. I've no objection to the proposed synonymization. How do we measure the age of the universe? How do we measure the brightness of the stars? What ...

Yeah, this seems like a junk tag. My inclination would be to retag the questions with more specific tags. When there are no laws-of-physics questions left, the tag will be automatically deleted.

I agree that tidal-forces concept is the driving force (literally) for ocean tides. Bodies have solid-tides as well, so we should either have three tags or one. I kind-of like the idea of having all three tags, but then what should we call the tides that the moons of gas giant planets induce in the gas? Or the tides produced in a star by a large companion (a ...

My understanding is that atmosphere and planetary-atmosphere tags will be merged and called planetary-atmosphere, so I will treat them as one in my summary below. I've set about the following scripted task: For all questions with the atmosphere or planetary-atmosphere tags that are not about planetary atmospheres remove those tags. Then if they need ...
