Please join us in Honolulu, the stately, cosmopolitan, enchanting capital of paradise, famous worldwide for its spectacular beaches, breathtaking views, inclusive culture, world's most perfect climate, and above all its hospitality, for two days of hands-on training in reactive transport modeling using The Geochemist's Workbench®.
Then stay on to hike Diamond Head, snorkel with the turtles, sip a mai tai, while away the evening at a luau, find a quiet beach, take in the grandeur of nature in this geologic wonder, and of course to attend the Goldschmidt 2020 conference.
What you will learn. Following a fully hands-on format, you will learn to construct, trace, and interpret models of transport in reacting geochemical systems. Specific topics covered include:
The topics will be illustrated through a series of case studies.
The short presentations and example exercises really showcased what the software can do and provided us with an opportunity to test drive the software.
– George A., Environmental Engineer, USA
I loved the workshop! It was just the right combination of instruction plus hands‑on.
– Karen Kinsella, GZA GeoEnvironmental
I had the best time during the workshop! I am 100% convinced all my models will be done in GWB from now on!
– Thais Lamana, Golder Associates
The workshop will be presented by Craig Bethke, Brian Farrell, Qusheng Jin, and Jia Wang. Prof. Bethke is the R.E. Grim Professor emeritus at the University of Illinois. He is the primary author of The Geochemist's Workbench® software package and author of the Geochemical and Biogeochemical Reaction Modeling text, published by Cambridge University Press.
Workshop locations will be assigned by the Goldschmidt Conference in early 2020; please watch this space for details.
Please come to the workshop with the software installed and activated on a laptop computer running Windows. Plan to arrive on time so that we may start each day at 8:30 am sharp.
The workshop runs until 5:00 pm on the first day, and we will wrap up the second day in time to attend the Icebreaker Welcome Reception.
Space is limited, so sign up early. You may join the workshop when you register for Goldschmidt 2020, or you may sign up directly with the workshop organizers.
Registering as part of the conference is the least expensive way to take part. Conference registration opens December 15.
Alternatively, you may register directly with the workshop organizers, without attending the meeting, at the undiscounted price. In this case, the workshop fee is US$599 until April 21, or $699 after that date. Full-time students currently enrolled in a university degree program can register at the reduced rate of US$499, or $599 after April 21. Please bring current student identification to the workshop.
We are pleased to welcome back participants from our previous workshops at a special discount when registering directly. For fastest verification, please sign up with the email address you used registering for the earlier course.
However you register, the workshop fee includes all course materials, coffee breaks, and lunch each day. Each registered participant will receive a free 60-day license to The Geochemist's Workbench® Professional version. We will ask you to bring to the course a laptop running Windows, with the software installed and activated.
Fees paid through the Goldschmidt are subject to Conference policies. A registration made with the workshop organizers may be transfered to another participant at no charge, and is fully refundable until 30 days before the workshop. In either case, liability in the event of workshop cancellation or other eventuality is limited to refund of the registration fee.
The Goldschmidt Conference maintains a list of discounted accommodations available to workshop participants. Please visit their accommodation page for current information.
The workshop is being held thanks to the generous efforts of our hosts and sponsors:
