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.

The SCOOBY research group is committed to maintaining an inclusive environment, regardless of age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, religion, nationality, immigration status, or socio-economic background. We recognize that our diverse backgrounds help us grow as individuals and improve our science, and we work to acknowledge, celebrate, and respect these differences. Discrimination or harassment of any kind is not tolerated in the lab, at lab functions on- or off-site, online, above ground or underwater, at sea, and at all other SCOOBY events. We will support individuals struggling with discrimination or harassment by embracing an open and supportive atmosphere and offering our collective engagement to hold colleagues and ourselves accountable for creating and maintaining an inclusive, empowering, anti-discriminatory, and equitable workplace for all.
