Re: Phreeqci questions




You can only operate on one solution at a time. I have added solution
numbers to make clear which solution is which, but the default assignment
of numbers would have been the same. There are two simulation of
evaporation, one with solution 1, one with solution 2.

Note that atmospheric CO2 partial pressure is 10^-3.5. Looking at iron
oxides, you should probably include atmospheric oxygen (10^-0.7 partial
pressure). Hematite is unlikely to form, but goethite is reasonable. You
don't have any manganese in your system, so rhodochrosite could not form.
