Table 1 Correlation coefficients for salinity and nutrients, 222Rn and nutrients, and 222Rn and chlorophyll-a

From: High-resolution mapping and time-series measurements of 222Rn concentrations and biogeochemical properties related to submarine groundwater discharge along the coast of Obama Bay, a semi-enclosed sea in Japan
