Chen Zhu’s representative publications in hydrogeology/hydrogeochemistry
Chen Zhu’s main contribution to hydrogeochemistry is the geochemical modeling of water-mineral-gas interactions in aquifers. Geochemical modeling consists of three parts: (i) a fundamental understanding of chemical reactions and processes in natural and experimental systems, often reflected in the thermodynamic properties of minerals, gasses, and aqueous species and kinetic rate constants and rate laws; (ii) applications with rigor and sound chemical principles; and (iii) books, computer codes, tools, and CyberPlatforms that facilitate the modeling. Chen and his co-authors made contributions to all three tenets.
