Today in Scientific Data, two compendia of geochemical and multi-omic sequence information (DNA, RNA, protein) generated over almost a decade of time series monitoring in a seasonally anoxic coastal marine setting are presented to the scientific community. These data descriptors introduce a model ecosystem for the study of microbial responses to ocean deoxygenation, a phenotype that is currently expanding due to climate change. Public access to this time series information is intended to promote scientific collaborations and the generation of new hypotheses relevant to microbial ecology, biogeochemistry and global change issues.

We thank SCOR Working Group 144 and past and present members of the Hallam Lab for their perennial engagement and support in moving these ideas and information forward into the public domain. We would also like to thank Sydney Brenner for his perspicacity and model systems thinking that has defined both scientific innovations and culture, and inspired us to extend our research beyond neurological networks.
