Bob Swett is the Florida Sea Grant specialist on boating and waterway management issues within Florida’s Cooperative Extension Service. His programmatic mission is to build a comprehensive extension and research program designed to foster the responsible use and management of Florida’s waterways. The primary focus of his extension program is to develop science-based information and methods that planners, managers, regulators, policymakers and others can use to plan for and manage surface water uses.
Deliverables include resource management applications and models, and innovative tools and methods that incorporate geographic information technologies designed to balance use of Florida's waterways with resource sustainability. In addition, he develops and implements training in the use of geospatial information technologies for natural resource management for audiences both within and external to UF. Dr. Swett, staff, and students also create informational products to promote stewardship and responsible and safe behavior among recreational waterway users.
