We present a second-order accurate adaptive algorithm for solving reactive transport flow in geochemical systems. A Strang-splitting approach is used to numerically decouple the transport component and the reaction component of the problem. The transport component is solved using a second-order accurate IMPES-like algorithm that exhibits excellent control(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigates the generation of HCl and other acid gases from boiling calcium chloride dominated waters at atmospheric pressure, primarily using numerical modeling. The main focus of this investigation relates to the long-term geologic disposal of nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, where pore waters around waste-emplacement(More)
