This dataset includes SSU rRNA gene sequence accession identifiers from marine sediments, marine subseafloor, and deep seawater along with quantities of various elements and compounds including (oxygen, ammonium, methane, hydrogen, total dissolved nitrogen, calcium, nitrate, nitrate, and total iron).  Also included in this dataset are microbial cell abundance, pH, latitude and longitude.  The sampling area in Northeast Pacific Ocean waters include long-term borehole observatories (CORKs) in the Juan de Fuca (JdF) Ridge Flank region from R/V Atlantis cruises AT15-35, AT15-55, AT15-66 and AT18-07..
