Correction to: Polar Biol  https://doi.org/10.1007/s00300-018-2338-x

This correction serves to provide the correct rendering of Table 3 with its respective symbols corrected to superscript (provided below and not in the original article). Additionally with this correction the author would like to bring to attention the revision of the original article, correcting typographical errors in the Abstract, Tables 1, 2, 3 and Figure 7. For the abstract this entailed the changing of ‘productivityon' to simply ‘productivity'. For Tables 1, 2 and 3, this entailed the changing of “five” to “four”. And for Fig. 7 this entailed changing the footnote from “at the five of the SSI” to “at the five stations of this study”. The correct legend information for Table 3 should read as follows:

Table 3 Values of productivity variables in the surface water column integrated from 1 to 25 m depths at the four stations in the South Shetland Islands.

Additionally the legend for Figure 7 should read:

Fig. 7 Correlations between a nanoplankton Chl-a size fraction percentage (%) and salinity, and b nanoplankton Chl-a size fraction percentage (%) and turbidity at the five stations of this study. BF Fildes Bay, BC Chile Bay, BH Hanna Bay, BD Deception Bay, RC Rada Covadonga.

The author and the copyeditors apologize for the mistakes in the original version of this article. This correction stands to correct the original article.
