Marinko Karanovic is a hydrogeoloogist, groundwater modeler and software developer with over 15 years of experience in development, calibration and visualization of analytical and numerical models. He’s a developer of GroundWater Desktop, a fully three-dimensional (3D) interface for visualization and analysis of groundwater models, their results, and environmental data such as water levels and chemistry. He also developed KT3D_H2O, a MapWindow plug-in for a custom version of the GSLIB KT3D water level mapping program that incorporates analytic elements and particle-tracking in capture zone analyses. He has worked on groundwater flow models to assess flow and transport of contaminants at several Superfund Sites.
