Objectives and competences

The main objective of this module is to provide the conceptual bases needed to design geochemical models, reactive transport models and water-rock interaction calculations. The secondary objective is to introduce the aspects related to the kinetics of reactions and the relationship with a water flow context. This 5-credit course is taught over 4-5 months, with synchronous streaming/face-to-face classes.

This postgraduate course forms part of the master's degree or postgraduate degree
