Microbial Community Turnover. Non-metric multidimensional scaling (NMDS) ordination based on relative abundance of ASVs (amplicon sequence variants). Each circle represents one sample, the closer two samples are the more similar is their microbial community structure. Circle size represents Shannon Diversity. Numbers indicate sampling time points. Colors indicate bloom layers. Note: Individual holes were very similar (see Additional file 1: Figure S9A) and thus we averaged relative ASV abundances for clarity, i.e. each circle represents an average across replicate experiments. NMDS ordinations for individual experiments are shown in Additional file 1: Figure S8. The communities in the different layers of individual experiments are significantly different, yet overlapping (see Additional file 1: Figure S8)
