Lateral solid lines (red) inside blue boxes indicate median values, and the upper and lower limits of the boxes correspond to the 25th and 75th percentiles, respectively. The whiskers indicate the extreme values among non-outliers, whereas the red crosses indicate outliers (a value that is more than 1.5 times the interquartile range away from the top of bottom of the box).
TextS1.docxWord 2007 document35031KLag effect on ΔNChla prcp in the seven subregions (a and e: GOM, b and f: MAB, c and g: LCn1, d and h: LCn2, i: SAB, j: LCs1, k: LCs2). Mean ΔNChla prcp values at each subregion were calculated from values of calendar months in which climatological NO3 concentration is (a–d) ≥ 1 μM and (e–k) < 1 μM. Error bars indicate one standard deviation from the means. Note the mean ΔNChla prcp values for NO3 ≥ 1 were calculated only in the northern subregions (a–d) where NO3 ≥ 1 is seasonally observed. The horizontal gray lines indicate ΔNChla prcp = 0.
