3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

BALANCE calculates the mass transfer (amounts of solid or gaseous phases entering or leaving the aqueous phase) necessary to account for the observed change in composition between two solutions. The program can also help to define and quantify chemical reactions that take place between groundwater and minerals.
