Thank you very much for the workshop. It was intense but very, very clear and useful.

– Samantha Y., Stanford University

Thank you for the GWB workshop – it was perfect! The tasks made the learning process really easy.

– Yuchen Liu, University of Illinois

As someone inexperienced in both transport and modeling, I found that the course content was made very easy and transparent.

Perth workshop — Sorry, SOLD OUT!

Perth workshop

We are returning to Perth, Western Australia to present our Reactive Transport Modeling workshop! Please join us as guests of Golder Associates at their West Perth offices, nestled between the Central Business District, Kings Park, and the Swan River, with sweeping views of water and city.

On February 8-9, 2017, you'll work for two days on Australia's glorious and unspoiled West Coast with veteran instructor Brian Farrell and walk away a master at creating and interpreting models of reactive transport in geochemical systems.

Please visit our Perth workshop page to register, or for more information.

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

– George A., Environmental Engineer, USA

Miami workshop — Registration open!

Miami workshop

Please come to Miami, the world's official capital of fun and sun, this spring for our Reactive Transport Modeling workshop! We will present a short course in the Sunshine State for the first time ever on March 20-21, as guests of Florida International University.

After two action-packed days in South Miami with veteran instructor Brian Farrell, you will walk away a master at creating and interpreting models of reactive transport in geochemical systems. Please visit the Miami workshop page for more information, or to register on-line.

I loved the [geochemical modeling] workshop! In the future I would really like to take the reactive transport course.

Goldschmidt 2017 workshop

Paris Goldschmidt

We are returning to the Goldschmidt Conference to present our famous workshop on Reactive Transport Modeling in Geochemical Systems in Paris on 12-13 August.

Please come to the City of Light, the world's favorite city, to join instructors Craig Bethke, Brian Farrell, Kate Maher, and Jenny Druhan for the workshop's fifth year at the Goldschmidt. It's practically an institution!

For details or to register, please visit our Paris workshop webpage.

The Reactive Transport Workshop was absolutely fantastic! Five stars, would recommend to a friend!

Sapporo Hot Spring workshop — Registration open!

Sapporo Hot Spring workshop

Join us for our workshop on Reactive Transport Modeling at a genuine Japanese onsen. We will convene once again at the world-famous Jozankei Hot Spring District, just outside Sapporo‘s city center, at the peak of the stunning autumn foliage season!

The workshop will be held in a spa built directly on top of the hot spring. After class, relax in the therapeutic waters and then enjoy with us the remarkable cuisine of Hokkaido, famous even in Japan for its quality and freshness.

Better yet, Prof. Tsutomu Sato of Hokkaido University is returning to help Craig Bethke teach the workshop!

SPECIAL OFFER: Your registration includes onsen accommodations, two very special Japanese dinners, two breakfasts and lunches, and transit between Sapporo and Jozankei! Please visit our Sapporo Hot Spring workshop page for more information.

Prior to the course I found the program daunting, but now I feel comfortable using it and am very impressed with what I can do.

2018 Edinburgh Summer School

Edinburgh Summer School

The 2018 class of the famous Reactive Transport Modelling Summer School will convene July 30-August 2 at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. The Summer School is designed to help post-graduate students in the geosciences learn the techniques of reactive transport modelling as applied to geoscientific research, and for advanced students to share the results of their work.

Each day will begin with hands-on instruction and end with a field excursion and an informal reception. We hope you can join us in Scotland’s capital city, filled with history and natural beauty, for three glorious summer days of long daylight and cool evenings.

Applications for this most special of events will be accepted starting in early 2018. For more information, please direct queries to rtmsummerschool@hw.ac.uk.

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

– Christian Wisskirchen, Golder Associates S.A., Santiago
