GWCarb v1.0: carbonate speciation tool
Taulis, Mauricio GWCarb v1.0: carbonate speciation tool.
This spreadsheet calculates carbonate speciation using carbonate equilibrium equations at standard conditions (T=25°C) with ionic strength corrections. The user will typically be able to calculate the different carbonate species by entering total alkalinity and pH. This spreadsheet contains additional tools to calculate the Langelier Index for calcium and the SAR of the water. Note that in this last calculation the potential for calcium precipitation is not taken into account. The last tool presented here is a carbonate speciation tool in open systems (e.g. open to the atmosphere) which takes into account atmospheric pressure.
