Dr. Zaluski joined the WET team in February 2012 bringing to us over forty years of diverse experience in hydrogeology and environmental services, including consulting, teaching, and research gained in three countries: United States, Poland, and Libya. He is knowledgeable in contaminated site characterization, remediation and closure for groundwater and soils, and also experienced in implementation and performance appraisal of cutting edge remedial technologies (e.g. nanotechnology) for groundwater and acid mine drainage. Marek’s expertise also includes water balance, water resources evaluation, aquifer testing, surface water hydrology, modeling of erosion and deposition, and proficiency in modeling of groundwater flow and contaminant transport, including particle transport in saturated and vadose zones. While in the past a professor at Montana Tech, Marek developed a graduate program in hydrogeology, first in the country field hydrogeology course and taught a wide spectrum of classes in hydrogeology. He published over 30 scientific papers and has two patents applicable for groundwater remediation.
Marek received his Ph.D. in Hydrogeology from Polish Academy of Science and his M.S. in Hydrogeology and Engineering Geology from the University of Warsaw, Poland. He is registered Professional Geologist in the states of Wyoming, Washington and Wisconsin, and holds national certifications as a Certified Ground Water Professional and a Professional Hydrogeologist.
