2019 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 short presentations and example exercises really showcased what the software can do and provided us with an opportunity to test drive the software.

I really liked the course! You have the ability to explain things in an easy way, while pointing out the key issues.
