Curious about red tide and other algae blooms in local waters and around Florida? Dr. Schwartz will cover the “why” and “how” of these topics and answer your questions. Schwartz earned a Ph.D. in Marine Studies – Oceanography at the University of Delaware and held two postdoctoral fellowships before he joined UWF in 2005. Much of his research has involved local waters—Choctawhatchee Bay, Pensacola Bay and Santa Rosa Sound, among others—and the Gulf Islands National Seashore. His findings have been published in books and in journals such as Biogeosciences, Estuaries and Coasts and Limnology and Oceanography.
