Competing Interests

Dr. William Nuttle works as a consultant for his firm Eco-Hydrology. In this capacity he functions similarly to a research professor by obtaining funding from competitive grants and writing research publications and technical reports. He received a portion of the MARES funding stated in the competing interests section to conduct the work related to this manuscript and thus has no additional competing interests. This does not alter the authors' adherence to all the PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
