Sapporo Hot Spring workshop — Sorry, sold out!

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 and Brian Farrell 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.

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

Seattle GSA 2017 workshop — Hurry, SEATS AVAILABLE!

Seattle GSA

The Geological Society of America Annual Meeting is coming back to Seattle in 2017, and so are we! Please join us in caffeinated, intoxicating Seattle as we present our popular Applied Geochemical Reaction Modeling workshop on October 20-21, just preceding the GSA meeting.

Instructors Brian Farrell, Melika Sharifi, and Jenny Druhan will show you how to set up and interpret geochemical models of reacting systems, beginning with the basics and continuing to advanced techniques only the experts know.

Please visit our Seattle workshop page for more information.

I had the best time during the workshop! I am 100% convinced all my models will be done in GWB from now on!

Taipei workshop— Registration open!

Taipei workshop

Please join us in Taipei, that most cosmopolitan of capital cities, on November 30 and December 1, as guests of Geoscience Information Co., Ltd., to learn reactive transport modeling.

After veteran instructor Brian Farrell leads you step by step through the theory and practice of reactive transport modeling, you will walk away a master at creating and interpreting simulations of reactive transport in geochemical systems.

Whether you are a beginner or experienced modeler, don't miss this opportunity to meet Brian and learn about the capabilities of GWB Professional.

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

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.

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.

Goldschmidt 2018 workshop

Paris Goldschmidt

We are returning to the Goldschmidt Conference to present our famous workshop on Reactive Transport Modeling in Geochemical Systems in Boston on 11-12 August.

Please come to one of North America's most fascinating and beautiful cities, the Cradle of American Liberty, to join instructors Craig Bethke, Brian Farrell, Kate Maher, Jenny Druhan, and Melika Sharifi for the workshop's sixth year at the Goldschmidt. It's practically an institution!

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

I thought the workshop was fantastic! The pacing and examples were very good and the course gave me a lot of ideas on how I can better use GWB.
