PHREEQC vs MinTEQ



Dear Mr. Park:

I am starting a project that will deal with chemical equilibrium and I
wanted to determine if there is consensus within USGS and USEPA as to which
of these models is most appropriate for problems of this nature.  I was told
that the client wants to do the work with MINTEQ but I am not sure of his
rationale.  Are there any pitfalls with using MINTEQ over PHREEQC?  I have
successfully installed a windows version of MINTEQ that was developed by the
Swedish.  It seems to operate fine.  However the US EPA version of MINTEQ is
DOS-based and not compatible with Windows XP.

Given what you know please provide opinions about the use of one or both of
these programs.

Thanks
