Dear David Just a short to note to say thanks you for replying so quickly and comprehensively. I'll carry out your comments as suggested. A couple of answers: Yes, flow rate is slow and the the experimental data was collected over five years, but I've run the model for much longer than that to allow Solution 0 to flush through the system to reach a state of no further mineralogical and pH changes. (The experimental data suggests this over the five year timescale, so we've yet to get the timings correct, but this is a good place to start.) Yes, we have been thinking about the redox conditions and I've run one calc with no Fe present, and also one with fixed pE, to overcome the changing redox conditions. Thanks again for your comments. They are really useful!
