Please join us as a guest of the Applied Research Center at Florida International University in the heart of unforgettable Miami, Florida, the sun and fun capital of the world, for two days of hands-on training in reactive transport modeling using The Geochemist's Workbench®. While you're there, consider spending a little quality time in the Sunshine State, with its many natural and cultural attractions.
What you will learn. Following a fully hands-on format, you will learn to construct, trace, and interpret models of transport in reacting geochemical systems. Specific topics covered include:
The topics will be illustrated through a series of case studies.
I was very impressed with the GWB Fate and Transport course in Johannesburg. It was well presented and very informative. I would recommend the course to any of my peers. Thank you, Brian and Craig!
