Surface water was collected between October 2000 and April 2005 at two sampling sites at the Sapelo Island Microbial Observatory (SIMO) in coastal Georgia: the Dean Creek site (a salt marsh tidal creek) and the Doboy Sound (a coastal ocean inlet). Samples were collected for the project "En-Gen: A Functional Genomics Approach to Organic Sulfur Cycling in the Ocean".

Dean Creek site: 81.2699°W, 31.3929°N
Doboy Sound: 81.2915°W, 31.3862°N

Both of these sites are located within the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) study area, more specifically the UGAMI site (UGA Marine Institute).
