A Corrigendum on
Phytoplankton Growth and Productivity in the Western North Atlantic: Observations of Regional Variability From the NAAMES Field Campaigns

by Fox, J., Behrenfeld, M. J., Haëntjens, N., Chase, A., Kramer, S. J., Boss, E., et al. (2020). Front. Mar. Sci. 7:24. doi: 10.3389/fmars.2020.00024

In the original article, two typographical errors occurred in equations. Equation (5) was specified as:

ΔθSM  =    1 - e(-0.15 ·PAR) 1 + e(-3 · Ig)

but the first term of the numerator should have contained a positive rather than a negative. The correct version is:

ΔθSM  =    1+ e(-0.15 ·PAR) 1+ e(-3 · Ig)

There was also an error in Equation (7). The growth term of the model, derived from coefficients in Figure 2, was incorrectly expressed as:

u = [1.57+ (1  θDM   ·   -16.8   ) ·  (0.0125+ (1  θPaM   ·   -47.03   )]·[1- e(-5 · PAR(z))]        

but should have been written as:

u=[(1  θDM      (-16.80)+ 1.57)   · (1  θPaM  (47.03)  + 0.0125)] ·  [1- e(-5 · PAR(z))]

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