Method P.16213 right column 2nd paragraph: "[Researchers] compiled [their] cell counts from the South Pacific Gyre (ref 5), the North Pacific Gyre, and the eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean with previously published counts from ocean margins and the equatorial Pacific Ocean (Fig. 1B)." P.16213 right column 4th paragraph: "For each of the 34 sites analyzed further, [researchers] determined two parameters: (i) cell concentration at 1 mbsf (variable b) and (ii) rate of decrease in cell counts with depth (variable m)(details are provided in SI Text)."
