Dr. Bill Sauck is associate professor of geophysics in the Department of Geosciences at Western Michigan University. He primarily focuses his research in ground penetrating radar application, electric resistivity and induced polarization, hydrogeology, mineral exploration and archeology.

Sauck spent six years in Brazil working in mineral exploration, groundwater problems and geophysical applications to archaeology in the Amazon region. His work led to the development of the conductive model for Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids spills. He has hosted a number of visiting scientists and graduate students from Egypt, traveling six times for groundwater exploration in the western Sinai and Eastern Desert. He has completed archaeological geophysics in Texas, American Samoa, Yucatan and Michigan.
