A corrigendum on
Bacterial Growth and Mortality after Deposition of Saharan Dust and Mixed Aerosols in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea: A Mesocosm Experiment

by Tsiola, A., Tsagaraki, M. T., Giannakourou, A., Nikolioudakis, N., Yücel, N., Herut, B., et al. (2017). Front. Mar. Sci. 3:281. doi: 10.3389/fmars.2016.00281

Reason for Corrigendum:

In the original article there was a mistake in the values of dissolved organic carbon concentration. The correct version of Table 2 and the third paragraph of the section “Results: Initial Water Characteristics and Nutrients Released with Dust Addition” appear below.

TABLE 2
www.frontiersin.org

Table 2. Concentration of dissolved phosphate (PO4), nitrite (NO2), nitrate (NO3), ammonium (NH4), silicate [Si(OH)4], organic carbon (DOC), and chlorophyll a at the ambient water collected between 7 and 8th May 2012 (in situ, 10 m depth), before dust deposition (T-1), and then at the experimental days when the viral reduction approach was performed (T1, T4, and T8).

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.

Dissolved organic carbon (DOC) was 73 μM C at the sampling site. DOC concentration varied little with time in the different mesocosms (Table 2).

Conflict of Interest Statement

The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest.
