Rosario Posted January 31, 2011 Share Posted January 31, 2011 I am trying to model the modern carbonate banks by mixing modern seawater composition with aragonite and calcite. The results I am getting are not what we see in modern carboante banks. I am using calcite kinetic rates for both calcite and aragonite. One problem that I have is that all the kinetic rates are in mole/m2 s and surface area in m2/g. In react all units are in cm2. If I don't change the units the model runs but is not realistic if I convert the units the model does not converge. The expected results should be the precipitation of dolomite and anhydrite and calcite dissolution. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
