This data set provides the peat microbial biomass carbon (MBC) and nitrogen (MBN), extractable organic carbon (EOC) and extractable nitrogen (EN) at the time of peat coring for Deep Peat Heating (DPH) and Whole Ecosystem Warming (WEW) for 2014-2017 from the Spruce and Peatland Responses Under Changing Environments (SPRUCE). C and N was extracted following a modified rapid chloroform fumigation protocol (Vance et al. 1987, Witt et al. 2000), and contents of the extractions were analyzed using a combustion catalytic oxidation TOC/N machine (Shimadzu TOC-L analyzer, Shimadzu Corporation, Columbia, Maryland,USA, or vario TOC Cube, Elementar, Germany).
