University of West Florida

University of West FloridaThe University of West Florida is situated near the westernmost border of Florida. Faculty, staff, and students are active in marine ecology, fisheries, economics, tourism and oil bioremediation. The Center for Environmental Diagnostics and Bioremediation (CEDB) is a small environmental research group focusing on microbial processes and biogeochemistry in the open ocean, estuaries, and watersheds, including bioremediation and pollution studies, working with academic departmental faculty in Biology, Chemistry and Environmental Studies. The Archaeology Institute is active in marine archaeology and concerned with preservation of intertidal and subtidal cultural sites, especially where there is the potential for damage with oil cleanup operations. The Haas Center and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) are active in economic analysis of spill impacts, real and perceived, and are aiding businesses dealing with losses. UWF has two service centers, one for GIS work and a Marine Services Center (MSC) where boats for inshore and offshore work and the UWF diving program are located.
