Reaction Interface file

Dear OGS users and devs,

for coupling OGS and PhreeqC, could anyone provide some background information on the .rei (reaction interface) files?

I received an example file from a colleague, which contains the keyword #REACTION_INTERFACE and the subkeyword $SOLID_SPECIES_DUMP_MOLES. A comment says this sets the mineral concentration in moles per m³ aquifer. However, the value set there is much lower than I would expect.

And a related question: which input dimensions does OGS generally expect from PhreeqC? So far, I've calculated water mass and aquifer rock moles with respect to 1m³ of porous aquifer. Is this correct? If so, is this correct for all dimensions?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

$SOLID_SPECIES_DUMP_MOLES.
will print out (not set) moles of solid phase species per m³ of Aquifer in an additional output file.

For information on the reaction interface, did you check the release notes of OGS5.5.0 on the UFZ wiki? Apart from this, there is not much further documentation.

For input concentrations: The question is rather: What input concentrations does Phreeqc expect? Usually, this is mol/kg water, which is simple for dilute systems, but tricky for brines. I guess it is easier for me to give you the information you need via telephone, so just give me a call whenever you like.
