    Next Course on hydrogeochemical transport modeling with PHREEQC:

    Amsterdam (NL):     30 March - 3 April 2020       

    The courses are intended to introduce the powerful capacity of PHREEQC for modeling practical hydrogeochemical problems. Lectures during the course provide an overview of the important processes in water quality. Hand and computer exercises from the 2nd edition of Appelo and Postma's 'Geochemistry, Groundwater and Pollution form an integral part of the course.

    In the course you will learn:

    The day-to-day program entails:

    day 1: Overview of Hydrogeochemical Reactions and Processes.
    Basics of PHREEQC, Input & output files, Mineral equilibration,
    Temperature- and Pressure-effects on solubility, Gases at high pressure, Mixing.
    day 2: Exchange, Surface complexation, Simulation of laboratory analyses.
    Exchangers/surfaces connected to (reacting) minerals.
    Pyrite oxydation, release/sorption of Arsenic.
    day 3: Advective, Reactive and Dispersive (1D) Transport
    Chromatographic separations. Modeling of Artificial Recharge
    day 4: Dual porosity calculations, Exchange with Stagnant zones
    Data optimization with PHREEQC and PEST
    Multicomponent diffusion and electromigration experiments in clays and cement / concrete
    Inverse Modeling of Water Quality
    day 5: Checking numbers from an inverse model
    Generalized Kinetics in PHREEQC
    Examples and exercises: Denitrification, Quartz/feldspar dissolution,
    Kinetics of exchange and surface complexation, Monod kinetics

    The course fee is  € 2150,-- (incl. 21% VAT) and includes:

    • a USB-stick with PHREEQC version 3, incl. source codes and the manuals of version 2 and 3.
    • The 2nd edition of Appelo and Postma's 'Geochemistry, Groundwater and Pollution' that is fully rewritten and updated with examples and exercises showing applications of PHREEQC
    • specific course exercises, and the answers
    • certificate of attendance
    • refreshments and luncheons during the 5 days of the course
    • desktop computers to work on.

    Max. Participants in the course: 12.
