Supplementary Table 1. Seasonally averaged sea-ice cover, SST and SSS data used for the multivariate statistical analysis.

Supplementary Table 2. Relative abundances of individual dinoflagellate cyst taxa, total cyst concentration [cysts g-1], and relative abundance of auto- and heterotrophic cysts at each station.

Supplementary Table 3. Relative abundances of individual benthic foraminifera taxa, total benthic foraminifera concentration [forams g-1], and relative abundance of calcareous and agglutinated benthic foraminifera at each station.
