Amplicon sequencing data of the 16S SSU rRNA marker gene of bacteria in four Mesososm experiments that spanned the spring transitional period (August - December 2013) in surface waters of the Western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP). Each mesocosm consisted of nearshore surface seawater (50 L) incubated in the laboratory for 10 days. more

Mesocosms were set up at Palmer Station, Antarctica, using seawater from the station’s intake, located at a depth of 6 m, 16 m from the shore of the station. This source water was monitored during the experimental period (August–December 2013) to determine any changes in environmental parameters that might influence bacterial community responses in mesocosm experiments. Samples for dissolved nutrients (phosphate, silicate, nitrite, and nitrate) and particulate organic carbon and nitrogen (POC and PN) were processed according to Palmer LTER standard protocols.
