PHREEQC does not solve the unsaturated zone equations for flow and transport. Flow can be reversed, but it must be manually specified. I don't know of any publicly available codes for treating unsaturated transport with reactions. Our Dept of Energy National labs have such codes as well as the Waterloo University in Canada, but I don't think they are available for distribution.

Is it possible to use PHREEQC for such problems? Do you know software treating the unsaturated transport with reactions? Thank you for your help. Sincerely, Michael Zilberbrand
