A Corrigendum on
Observational study of land-surface-cloud-atmosphere coupling on daily timescales

by Betts, A. K., Desjardins, R., Beljaars, A. C. M., and Tawfik, A. (2015). Front. Earth Sci. 3:13. doi: 10.3389/feart.2015.00013

In the original article, there was an error in the leading constant in the cold season LWn regression in Equation (18b). The correct equation is

LWn=-112.2(±9.8)+43.5(±2.8)OPAQm+26.8(±2.5)OPAQm2+0.29(±0.02)RHm                  -1.02(±0.03)Tm(18b)    (1)

The authors apologize for the mistake. This error does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. However, this error was carried over to a following paper, where it led to a y-axis offset for LWn and Rn in Figure 5 of Betts and Tawfik (2016a). A corrigendum has been posted also for this paper (Betts and Tawfik, 2016b).
