Locations where C. finmarchicus (Atlantic side) and C. marshallae (Pacific side) successfully reached diapause while being advected at surface:  Cases without food limitation and with food limitation (using SeaWiFS chlorophyll).



Locations where (a) C. glacialis and (b) C. hyperboreus successfully reached diapause at the surface under temperature dependent development only using snow melt/irradiance as the growth season proxy and to define starting locations.  Blue dots: release locations; Red dots: end locations at the end of growth season.



Locations reached by (a) C. finmarchicus (Atlantic side) and C. marshallae (Pacific side) after the first year diapause, using the chlorophyll a criterion for the growth season and (b) C. glacialis after the second year diapause and (c) C. hyperboreus after the third year diapause; both using the snow melt/irradiance criterion for the growth season. All diapausing individuals stay at 200 m (for waters deeper than 200 m) or 5 m above the bottom (for waters shallower than 200 m). Blue dots: release locations determined from the end location of individuals reached diapause stage at the end of the growth season; red dots: end locations

Locations where individuals reached diapause at the surface under temperatures 2 °C warmer than the climatology for (a) C. finmarchicus (Atlantic side) and C. marshallae, (b) C. glacialis, (c) C. hyperboreus and (d) same as (a), but starts the growth season two weeks earlier. Blue dots: release locations; Red dots: end locations at the end of growth season
