Get GEM-Selektor binary package or build it from source code!

GEM-Selektor v.3 (GEMS3) is a code package for thermodynamic modelling of aquatic (geo)chemical systems.

The GEMS3 package is distributed free of charge to registered users affiliated to non-profit educational and research institutions, for educational and research purposes only, subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use.

Use of GEMS3 in any commercial activity (not education or research) requires a written agreement with the vendor (Paul Scherrer Institute).

The currently available trunk variant of GEMS3  is provided without source code, in the form of an executable program with built-in thermodynamic database and help database. The source code is publicly available here and here. Starting from version 3.6.0, the source code of GEMS3GUI part is made available under the GPL v.3 license. The source code of GEMS3K kernel is available under LGPL v.3 license, as before.

GEMS3 runs under Windows, Mac OSX and Linux desktop PCs. See the GEMS3 Technical Info page for the IT-related information and for the installation instructions.

People who are not afraid of computing (especially those working on Linux systems) can download git repositories of GEMS3GUI and GEMS3K and build them as described in Readme.md of GEMS3GUI. To download the latest (trunk) version of the GEMS3GUI source code under GPL v.3 license, open your web browser and navigate to https://bitbucket.org/gems4/gems3gui (strongly recommended for Linux users). To build the code, follow the instructions in Readme.md file there (you need to have Git installed - provided by default in MacOS, Linux, and Windows 10).
