A Corrigendum on
Fire Responses to the 2010 and 2015/2016 Amazonian Droughts

by Silva Junior, C. H. L., Anderson, L. O., Silva, A. L., Almeida, C. T., Dalagnol, R., Pletsch, M. A. J. S., et al. (2019). Front. Earth Sci. 7:97. doi: 10.3389/feart.2019.00097

In the original article, there were two typos in the Abstract. In the following sentence: “The two analyzed droughts emitted together 0.47 Pg CO2, with 0.23 Pg CO2 in 2010, 0.15 Tg CO2 in 2015 and 0.09 Tg CO2 in 2016, which represented, respectively, 209%, 136%, 82% of annual Brazil's national target for reducing carbon emissions from deforestation by 2017 (approximately 0.11 Pg CO2 year−1 from 2006 to 2017).”, the correct unit of measurement is “Pg” and not “Tg” as written in the published version.

A correction has been made to Abstract:

The two analyzed droughts emitted together 0.47 Pg CO2, with 0.23 Pg CO2 in 2010, 0.15 Pg CO2 in 2015 and 0.09 Pg CO2 in 2016, which represented, respectively, 209%, 136%, 82% of annual Brazil's national target for reducing carbon emissions from deforestation by 2017 (approximately 0.11 Pg CO2 year−1 from 2006 to 2017).

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
