Abstract

A computer program, SPECIATION, was developed to deter-mine the detailed composition of an aqueous solution and the concentrations and activities of all species. Once the detailed composition of an aqueous solution is known, it is possible to determine the saturation level of the solution with respect to any mineral, which is silica for this study.
