This dataset describes the sediment push cores taken by Scuba diving at a shallow-water hydrothermal vent site in Paleochori Bay, Milos Island, Greece for subsequent analyses to determine the total organic carbon (TOC), total organic nitrogen (TON), the stable carbon isotopic composition of TOC (d13C), the stable nitrogen isotopic composition of TON (d15N), and for the extraction of DNA for subsequent microbial community analyses based on sequencing 16S rRNA amplicons using 454 technology.
