Potential Connectivity matrix for the Hawaiian Archipelago.

(A) The values in each cell are “settlement” probabilities scaled to the receiving site for year-round particle release. Arrows indicated the breaks mentioned in the text. Each row in the matrix adds up to 1. High values (red) indicate high connectivity and low numbers (blue) indicate low connectivity, and white cells denote no connectivity. (B) Difference matrix showing the difference in connectivity between year-round and May-June particle release. The May-June release matrix is subtracted from the year-round release matrix (in A above). Positive values (red) denote a higher connectivity value for year-round releases and a negative number (blue) denotes higher connectivity for May-June released particles.
