Stable and metastable phases are checked using rigorous criteria based on phase stability index
Aqueous equilbria may involve many (non)ideal solid or liquid solutions, gas mixture or non-ideal gaseous fluids
Multi-site-surface complexation on mineral-water interfaces can be computed, also without site balances
Redox state is calculated from the bulk chemical composition of the system via the GEM dual solution
Processes of chemical mass transfer can be simulated using principles of local and partial equilibrium
Built-in default chemical thermodynamic database is provided; third-party databases are also available
Thermodynamic data is automatically corrected for temperature and pressure of interest
GEMS3K - the standalone kernel of GEMS3 can be coupled to mass-transport or parameter-fitting codes
Qt5- based Graphical User Interface with plotting of results and a context-sensitive run-time help system
Installers available for all major PC platforms (Windows 10; Macos 10.11 to 10.15; Ubuntu linux 18.04 LTS)
download it; install as described in TechInfo page; start the program; click on the 'Help' toolbar button; read instructions there.
