Please join us in Indianapolis, the capital city of the Hoosier State, as guests of the Department of Earth Sciences at IUPUI for two days of hands-on training in applied geochemical reaction modeling. Then, stay on for the Geological Society of America 2018 Annual Meeting.
What you will learn. Following a fully hands-on format, you will learn to construct, trace, and interpret models of reaction in multi-component geochemical systems. Specific topics covered include:
Neither of us specializes in groundwater chemistry, but we found the course easy to follow and understand.

I loved the [geochemical modeling] workshop! In the future I would really like to take the reactive transport course.
– Ryan Davis, Colorado State University
The workshop will be presented by Brian Farrell, Melika Sharifi, and Jenny Druhan. Brian and Melika are Geochemists at Aqueous Solutions LLC, maker of The Geochemist's Workbench®.
The IUPUI Campus Center is located just a half dozen blocks from downtown Indianapolis and is a convenient stroll from the vicinity of the Indiana Convention Center, site of the GSA Annual Meeting. Parking is available close-by; please consult the campus visitor parking guide for locations and rates.
The workshop starts at 8:30 am sharp each day and continues to about 5:00 pm. Please arrive a few minutes early on the first day to set up your workspace. We will wrap up on the second day in time to attend the GSA Icebreaker reception.
