The authors have amended the unit in Table 1 (second column) and in the Y-axis label of figure 4 to “NO2 + NO3 (μM)”. Equation 5 on page 1065 has also been revised. Equation 5 is valid when any one of the normalized size fractions (NSFs) is considered as a covariate (Böhning, 1992 and Hijazi & Jernigan 2009). However, the NSFs were previously treated as independent so therefore, the corrected formula is: inline image.
