PHREEQC does not use the special approach to redox that was used in PHREEQE(1980). Redox is now handled directly by including mole-balance equations on H and O and a charge-balance equation. These equations are sufficient to correctly handle redox problems. Sorry, but I just threw out the last of the 1980 report, but it really is obsolete.

In an article of Liu and Narasimhan, the authors refer to Parkhurst et al, 1980 when describing the internal approach for modeling redox reactions. Is this approach still used in PHREEQC? and is it still possible to get/order a copie of the 1980 USGS report? Best regards, Bruno Bruno Haerens Hydrogeology & Engineering Geology Dpt.
