Description
TOPICS IN GEOCHEMISTRY: GEOCHEMISTRY
This course will focus on modeling fluid-rock interaction under low (Earth surface) to moderate (hydrothermal) temperature conditions. We will cover basic equilibrium and kinetic reactions, sorption and ion exchange, dissolution and precipitation, and reactive transport modeling. Students will use The Geochemist's Workbench® software as a tool to generate stability diagrams, to understand and manipulate equilibrium systems, and to produce more complex reactive transport models on systems of interest to their research.
