Gibbs Energy Minimization Software for Geochemical Modeling
Currently, GEM Software includes three code packages and a default
v.3 (GEMS3): the interactive code package for geochemical
the standalone code for solving for geochemical equilibria (with
the generic parameter-fitting code coupled with the GEMS3K code
GEMS TDB: the
default chemical thermodynamic database of GEM-Selektor package
GEM software is distributed "as is" in its present state of development
by the Laboratory for Waste Management (LES)
of the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI)
with two purposes:
- to promote the GEM method and software into the academic research
- to gather the users feedback, vital for making the software more
functional and reliable.
Permission to download and use GEM Software is hereby granted free of
