2017 workshops

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

– Eline Feenstra, University of Fribourg

The execution of the workshop was outstanding! The software itself is great – most of what I need in one place.

– Harsev S., Environmental Engineering Student, USA

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

– Kristina G., Syracuse University

Miami workshop — Hurry, seats available!

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 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

Goldschmidt 2017 workshop — Seats available!

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.

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

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.

Neither of us specializes in groundwater chemistry, but we found the course easy to follow and understand.

Seattle GSA 2017 workshop — Registration open!

Denver 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 and Melika Sharifi 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 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.

– Morgan Warren, Golder Associates

Seoul workshop

Seoul workshop

Our famous Reactive Transport Modeling workshop is coming to Korea May 2-3, 2018 for the very first time!

Join us in the exciting Gangnam District (perhaps you know the song Gangnam Style?) at the Seoul campus of the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology to learn the theory and application of reactive transport modeling applied to geochemical systems!

Please watch our Seoul workshop page for more information as the date nears.

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.

– Ashlee D., Penn State University

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.

Thank you for the amazing workshop! The presentations and hands-on exercises were tremendously helpful. I enjoyed it!!!

– Claudia Cardona, Florida International University
