A corrigendum on
Annual Climatology of the Diurnal Cycle on the Canadian Prairies

by Betts, A. K., and Tawfik, A. B. (2016). Front. Earth Sci. 4:1. doi: 10.3389/feart.2016.00001

Reason for Corrigendum:

1: There was an error in the leading constant in the cold season LWn regression in Equation (3b). The correct equation is

LWn=112.2(±9.8)+43.5(±2.8)OPAQm+26.8(±2.5)OPAQm2             +0.29(±0.02)RHm1.02(±0.03)Tm    (3b)

The authors apologize for the mistake. This error does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. However, this error gave a y-axis offset for LWn and Rn in Figure 5 (lower panels). The corrected version of Figure 5 follows.


Figure 5. Interannual variability of SWn, LWn, and Rn for warm season (AMJJASO) and cold season (NDJFM) (left) and (right) regression of SWn and Rn on OPAQSW, LWn on OPAQm in warm season (top); SWn on OPAQSW, LWn, and Rn on OPAQm in cold season (bottom).

Author Contributions

AB made this error, and both authors approve the correction.
