  1. Hello Tom, I have a question regarding the treatment of the Pitzer parameters alpha1 and alpha2 in GWB. In Craig`s book "Geochemical and Biogeochemical Reaction Modeling" (2nd edn) I find the following equation in Table 8.1 on page 125 (under step 4): BMX = beta0 + beta1 * g * (alpha1 * sqrt(I)) + beta2 * g * (12 * sqrt(I)) Is it correct, that the "12" represents the value of alpha2 and is it fixed to that value for every possible cation-anion pair? This would imply that the alpha2 values given in the parameter file are not really used? Thanks a lot for your help, Christiane
  2. Hello, so far, I´m not too experienced with GWB but I do think it is a very capable program (I use version 8). Recently, I did some calculations about minerals precipitating in chlorine solutions. In these calculations, the water mass decreases during the simulations while the minerals incoporate water in their structures (I guess it`s due to that). Is there any possibility to keep the water mass constant anyways during simulation? Thanks a lot for your help, Christiane I attach a script and the thermo_hmw database (though I made no changes on it). cacl_gypsum.rea thermo_hmw.txt
