a A satellite image of Sargassum wet weight biomass in the North Atlantic during June 201813. b, c Illustrative pictures of Sargassum rafts in the Sargasso Sea (2013) with a diver underneath or inside a raft for perspective. d, e Cumulative Sargassum particulate organic carbon (POC) and particulate inorganic carbon (PIC) within 5°S–25°N, 89°W–15°E from 2011 to 2018 or the 2018 growth cycle. The shaded areas indicate upper and lower bounds depending on Sargassum PIC:POC ratios.
