2018 Geochemical Modeling for Environmental Applications Workshop

 

 
 

NWRA is Pleased to Introduce the Instructor:
Connor Newman
, Environmental Scientist – Hydrology & Geochemistry, Bureau of Mining Regulation & Reclamation, Nevada Division of Environmental Protection

Description: The complexity of geochemical processes occurring in groundwater and surface water commonly necessitates the use of geochemical models to evaluate various environmental aspects relating to water quality. These models may be as simple as a calculation of mineral solubility or as complex as a three-dimensional prediction of reactive transport.  Once completed, the results of geochemical models are utilized for a variety of applications including regulatory compliance, guiding remediation efforts, and planning water resources management actions. This workshop reviews the basics of geochemical modeling and provides example applications. The workshop will focus on PHREEQC and other open-source modeling tools available from the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

Notes for Attendees: This workshop will include hands-on use of geochemical modeling software. For the workshop to move according to schedule all attendees must bring a laptop computer with PHREEQC installed and functional.

Who Should Attend: Hydrogeologists, water managers, geologists, engineers, regulators. The workshop will utilize some prior understanding of geochemical principles (equilibrium vs. kinetics, solubility, adsorption, speciation, etc.).

*NOTE: Seating is limited, so we advise you to register early.
