Mariela Brooks joined ACRC in 2020. Prior to that, she was a graduate student in Marine Chemistry at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD, where she received her M.S. in Earth Sciences and Ph.D. in Oceanography. Her doctoral work focused on open-ocean time-series measurements of inorganic carbon chemistry and stable carbon isotopes to better understand upper ocean carbon cycle dynamics. As a part of this project, she compared time-series observations with large geophysical datasets and a global ocean model to provide geographic context and determine spatial and temporal patterns as well as relationships between oceanographic and climate variables.

Mariela’s current research focuses on the marine carbon cycle and the impacts of freshwater discharge from glacial and non-glacial watersheds on nearshore ecosystems in Southeast Alaska.

Outside of her research, Mariela enjoys packrafting, climbing, sea-kayaking, surfing, and being in the outdoors whenever possible.
