-ve vs. +ve mole transfers & Closed vs. Open system



David,

	On your phreeqc model, could you clarify the following:

	1). For -ve CO2 mole transfers, should I interpret this
	as CO2 release/respiration ? And, +ve CO2 mole transfers
	as CO2 uptake/dissolution ?  

	2). In several of the inverse models, I noticed consistent negative mole
	 transfers for gypsum, but I believe gypsum doesn't precipitate
	readily.  

	3). Is an open system assumed for inverse modeling ?  i.e.,
	the partial pressure of CO2 is not fixed ?

	Thanks.

Ranjan
