  1. Data listed here is cited from Le et al. [39]. The three stations below are plotted in Fig. 1 (denoted as open triangles) and R01 and R02, R03 and R04, and CC06 and CC07 are paired with each other for a comparison of denitrifying activities and algal productivities. The three stations that we choose to represent the primary productions depend on the measured chlorophyll a (chl-a) concentrations, namely, R01 and R02, R03 and R04, and CC06 and CC07, have similar chl-a content at each depth (data shown in Le et al. [39])
