Dr. Parkhurst I'm a new user of PHREEQC and I had been carrying around a couple questions that your e-mail stimulated. Here goes: As I (and my students) read the manual, there are two possible boundary conditions for the end of the domain: 1) constant concetration, or 2) constant flux (3rd type). My student was unable to implement the zero derivative condition. My experience with interpreting column experiments has led me to adopt either a zero-derivative or semi-infinite condition for the exit (domain end). Certainly, a constant concentration or constant flux is not applicable to most common experimental conditions. It seems like it would be straightforward to implement the other conditions. Am I misunderstanding something here? Thanks Alan Rabideau -- Alan J.
