The unexpected result is the reaction of N2 with O2 to make nitric acid and the low pH. There are entries in the mail archive https://wwwbrr.cr.usgs.gov/projects/GWC_coupled/phreeqc/mail related to the partial equilibrium system. See particularly an entry related to Yves Dudal for an example of how to disconnect nitrogen gas from equilibrium with nitrate and oxygen.

When I run the example I get a reduction of pH from 7 to 2. Where is my mistake?
