SALSOLCHEMEC: an application to calculate the salt speciation in the soil solution and the exchange complex at equilibrium
SALSOLCHEMEC (SALine SOLution CHEMistry with Exchange Complex) is a computer program designed to calculate the salt speciation in the solution and the exchange complex at equilibrium at 25ºC of saline, calcareous and gypsiferous soils. SALSOLCHEMEC is based on an ionic association model for the sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, chloride, nitrate, sulfate, bicarbonate and carbonate ions. SALSOLCHEMEC carries out calculations of ionic speciation including the soil solution, the exchange complex and the mineral phases calcite and gypsum, and electrical conductivity at 25°C (EC25).
The essential steps for running the SALTIRSOIL model are described below.
