SORPTION

Specifies parameters for sorption reactions.

Required Cards:

SORPTION
Opens the sorption reaction block.

Optional Cards:

ION_EXCHANGE_RXN
Sorption defined through ion exchange reactions.
ISOTHERM_REACTIONS
Sorption reactions defined by isotherms (e.g. linear, Langmuir, Freundlich).
SURFACE_COMPLEXATION_RXN
Opens surface complexation reaction block.
