Taipei workshop
Reactive Transport Modeling
Taipei, Taiwan • 30 November–1 December 2017

Register nowPlease join us in the Songshan District of Taipei, that most cosmopolitan of capital cities, as guests of Geoscience Information Co., Ltd., to learn reactive transport modeling.

After veteran instructor Brian Farrell leads you step by step through the theory and practice of reactive transport modeling, you will walk away a master at creating and interpreting simulations of reactive transport in geochemical systems.

Whether you are a beginner or experienced modeler, don't miss this opportunity to meet Brian and learn about the capabilities of GWB Professional.

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:

  • Introduction to geochemical modeling
  • Transport in flowing groundwater
  • Dual porosity models (stagnant zones)
  • Kd, Freundlich, and Langmuir sorption
  • Surface complexation
  • Colloid-facilitated transport
  • Reaction kinetics
  • Biodegradation
  • Dissolution and precipitation
  • Microbial catalysis and growth
  • Effective graphical presentation
  • Creating animation and video

Thank you for the GWB workshop – it was perfect! The tasks made the learning process really easy.

– Yuchen Liu, University of Illinois

I thought the workshop was fantastic! The pacing and examples were very good and the course gave me a lot of ideas on how I can better use GWB.

– Morgan Warren, Golder Associates

I have been modeling with GWB for several years now but I always learn something new at the workshops.
