SCOOBY research deals with 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 activities are mainly concerned with ocean acidification in coral reefs and in near-shore coastal environments, but we are also interested in other parts of the ocean such as the North Atlantic subtropical gyre. We use a combination of research approaches including laboratory and mesocosm experiments, field observations, and numerical models to address questions and hypotheses about marine biogeochemical processes, organisms, and ecosystems.
