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!


Neither of us specializes in groundwater chemistry, but we found the course easy to follow and understand.

– Abby M., Horizons Regional Council, New Zealand

The best workshop I’ve ever participated in. The short theoretical introductions and illustrated exercises helped me learn the software in two days.

– Valeria B., Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

I loved the workshop! It was just the right combination of instruction plus hands‑on.

– Karen Kinsella, GZA GeoEnvironmental


Springtime in Chicago — Applied geochemical reaction modeling

Chicago workshop

April 16-17: Save the dates! Come enjoy springtime in one of our favorite cities in the world, The City of Big Shoulders, Chicago, and take in our popular Geochemical Reaction Modeling workshop while you're there.

Instructors Brian Farrell and Jia Wang will show you how to set up and interpret geochemical models of reacting systems. Whether you're a beginner or experienced user, this workshop is sure to take your modeling skills to the next level.

Please visit our Chicago Workshop page for more information.

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

Goldschmidt 2020 workshop

Hawaii Goldschmidt

People are already asking if we are returning to Goldschmidt 2020 to present our Reactive Transport Modeling workshop in Hawaii. The answer is ... yes, we will be there with bells on!

Registration opens in December. Be sure to register early — recent workshops have sold out months in advance!

Please watch our Hawaii workshop page for more information as the date approaches.

The [Johannesburg] workshop was good and quite informative, I'll be attending the one that you'll hold in Cape Town in 2016.

– Hlanganani Tutu, University of the Witwatersrand


Chicago 2020 Reactive Transport Modeling workshop

Chicago RTM workshop

Please join us November 5-6 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.

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
