2019-2020 workshops

Learn to use The Geochemist's Workbench® like a pro with training from Aqueous Solutions, the people who make the software. We offer two workshops

  • Applied Geochemical Reaction Modeling
  • Reactive Transport Modeling
which may be taken in either order, and the contents of which have minimal overlap. Your time is valuable – let us get you up and running quickly!


The execution of the workshop was outstanding! The software itself is great – most of what I need in one place.

– Harsev S., Environmental Engineering Student, USA

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

Goldschmidt 2019 workshop — Two seats left!

Barcelona Goldschmidt

We are returning to the Goldschmidt Conference to present our famous hands-on workshop on Reactive Transport Modelling in Barcelona, on 17-18 August.

Please come to the cosmopolitan capital of Spain's Catalonia region, to join instructors Craig Bethke, Brian Farrell, Kate Maher, and Qusheng Jin for the workshop's seventh year at the Goldschmidt. It's practically an institution!

Important Update: Registration through the Goldschmidt Conference is closed, but a few seats may still be available directly through Aqueous Solutions.

Please visit our Barcelona workshop webpage for details and to register online for any remaining seats.

I loved the [geochemical modeling] workshop! In the future I would really like to take the reactive transport course.

Chicago 2019 Reactive Transport Modeling workshop

Chicago RTM workshop

Please join us November 4-5 in one of our favorite cities in the world, The City of Big Shoulders, Chicago, for our famous Reactive Transport Modeling workshop.

Instructors Brian Farrell and Jia Wang will show you how to set up and interpret models of transport in reacting geochemical systems, beginning with the basics and continuing to advanced techniques only the experts know.

Please visit our Chicago workshop page for more information.

Prior to the course I found the program daunting, but now I feel comfortable using it and am very impressed with what I can do.
