The Scripps Coastal and Open Ocean Biogeochemistry (SCOOBY) research group focuses on global environmental change owing to both natural and anthropogenic processes, and the subsequent effects on the function, role, and cycling of carbon in marine environments. Current research projects are mainly concerned with the effect of ocean acidification on biogeochemical processes (e.g., primary production, respiration, calcification and CaCO3 dissolution) in coral reefs and in near-shore coastal environments, which requires a fundamental understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological mechanisms and controls that regulate these processes.
