What is dolomite-ord in the database?


Recommended Posts

Hello, what is the dolomite-ord and dolomite-dis in the database? Dolomite-ord often show together with dolomite. Are they the same? If I suppress dolomite-ord, the excessive Mg, Ca and CO3-- would form other minerals. I am always confused by the three different dolomite. Should I just just choose one dolomite to precipitate? Thanks.

I believe dolomite-ord and dolomite-dis refers to dolomite-ordered and dolomite-disordered. It would be best to follow the reference in the thermo dataset to learn more about how they differ and decide on which one suits your simulation best. Here's a related post from a few years ago.

Hope this helps,
