QICS Paper: Response of the ammonia oxidation activity of microorganisms in surface sediment to a controlled sub-seabed release of CO2

The impact of a sub-seabed CO2 leak from geological sequestration on the microbial process of ammonia oxidation was investigated in the field. Sediment samples were taken before, during and after a...

Pioneer Microbial Communities of the Fimmvörðuháls Lava Flow, Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland

The data set is sequences of microorganisms that were isolated or determined by direct DNA extraction from the Eyjafjallajökull Iceland lava flows. The data is held in BLAST as follows: Clone 16S...

Data from Chicxulub crater (NERC grant NE/P006736/1)

Cell count data from the Chicxulub crater. Grant abstract: The deep subsurface is recognised to be an environment that supports a large and diverse microbial biosphere, and yet we still know very...

Soil microbial potential enzyme activities in fertilised plots in the Central Amazon, 2018

The data consists of potential activity of enzymes released by microorganisms in soils of old growth forests in the Central Amazon. Soils were sampled in January 2018, seven months after nutrient...

Standardised counts of bacteria, fungi and micro eukaryotes abundances across geo-linked sampling locations on grassland, UK (2016)

The data consist of standardised counts of taxon abundances (bacteria, fungi and micro eukaryotes) from soil samples collected from paired intensive and extensive grassland systems, including low...

QICS Data: Effect of a controlled sub-seabed release of CO2 in Ardmucknish Bay on microbial activity (2012 - 2014)

The response of the benthic microbial community to a controlled sub-seabed CO2 leak was assessed using quantitative PCR measurements of benthic bacterial, archaeal and cyanobacteria/chloroplast 16S...
