I am currently a student at the University of Sunderland in the North East
of England studying Engineering Geology.
I am conducting a study into the effects of gypsum dissolution within the
Permian strata in the region.
During the course of my research I have taken samples of groundwater and
subjected them to geochemical analysis of:
Temperature (Taken in the field with a probe meter),
pH (probe meter),
SULPHATE (IC (ion chromatography)),
CALCIUM (AAS (atomic absorption spectrophotometry)).
My past reading has shown that saturated sulphate levels are indicative of
gypsum dissolution (which is becoming an increasing problem in certain parts
of England)and was wondering if PHREEQ was the correct program for
ascertaining this. If not is their anything you could recommend?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
