Workshops and virtual retreats

Learn to use The Geochemist's Workbench® like a pro with training from Aqueous Solutions, the people who make the software. Your time is valuable—let us get you up and running quickly!


As someone inexperienced in both transport and modeling, I found that the course content was made very easy and transparent.

– Eline Feenstra, University of Fribourg

Thanks again for a great course! I really learned a lot and am looking forward to putting it into practice.

– Andrew Wigston, Natural Resources Canada

I really liked the course! You have the ability to explain things in an easy way, while pointing out the key issues.

 2024 Virtual Retreats

2024 virtual retreat

Immerse yourself with like-minded colleagues from around the world to learn the ins and outs of geochemical modeling at a Virtual Retreat.

Each instructor-led, hands-on retreat spans four half-day sessions and gives you a detailed look at how you can apply the latest modeling techniques in your work.

In 2024, we will offer two retreats: Geochemical Reaction Modeling in the spring, and then in the fall, Reactive Transport Modeling. Whether you're a beginner or expert, don't miss these opportunities to hone your skills!

I have been modeling with GWB for several years now but I always learn something new at the workshops.

– Johan Fourie, Geostratum Groundwater & Geochemistry Consulting


Featured workshop—2024 Chicago Goldschmidt

GWB Community workshop

Heading to the Goldschmidt this year? Don't miss your chance to learn to use the free GWB Community Edition to model speciation in aqueous geochemical systems!

In this in-person, hands-on workshop, we will construct Pourbaix diagrams, model species distributions in natural waters, account for redox disequilibrium, and incorporate the effects of surface complexation.

For details or to register, please visit the workshop webpage.

Thank you for the GWB workshop—it was perfect! The tasks made the learning process really easy.

– Yuchen Liu, University of Illinois
