I haven't done it, but Tony Appelo describes how to set up radial problems
for PHREEQM in his book, Geochemistry groundwater and pollution (Balkema,
he is working on a second edition).  The same approach applies to PHREEQC.
I think all you really have to do is define cell lengths that decrease with
distance by the appropriate amount.

  From p. 423:

length(1) = R/ncell^.5, where length(1) is the length of the first cell,
ncell is the number of cells you want to use, and R is the maximum radial

length(n) = length(1)(n^.5 - (n-1)^.5), for  cell n.

He gives an example on pager 437. If you have problems, he can probably
help you better than I (appt@xxxxxxxxx).

Dear David,

 I'm very interested to know if any version of PHREEQ is currently set
up to perform 1-d radial transport calculations, for either a
spherically or cylindrically symmetric system.

Thanks -
Sam Arey
