Adam Porowski is a licensed hydrogeologist at the Institute of Geological Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences (ING PAN) in Warsaw, Poland. His principal research interests concern the application of isotopic methods in hydrogeology and hydrogeochemistry. He obtained a hydrogeological license according to the Polish Geological and Mining Law from the Ministry of Environment of Poland. Dr. Porowski was granted doctoral scholarships at the Kent State University, United States, and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, Germany. He completed many courses concerning various aspects of applied hydrogeology and modern methods of groundwater sampling, groundwater dating, borehole measurements, hydrogeological and geochemical data acquisition, and processing and interpretation, for example, summer school of geothermal exploration (Izmir, Turkey), tracers in hydrogeology (University of Adam Mickiewicz, Poland), ICDP drilling course (Windischeschenbach, Germany), and dating of geological materials (GADAM Centre, Gliwice, Poland). He is the author of many scientific papers, coeditor of one book, leader or principal investigator of three research grants sponsored by the National Committee for Scientific Research and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Poland, and author and coauthor of several studies performed for the industrial sector. Actually, he is a secretary of the Commission on Mineral and Thermal Waters of IAH and one of the leaders of the EU FP7 ATLAB Project performed at the ING PAN, where he is responsible for the development of collaboration between science and industry.
