In the published article, there was an error in Figure 5 as published. An older version of the figure was used. The revised Figure 5 has updated subfigures B, C, and D, which are located in squares b–d in Figure 4. The corrected Figure 5 and its caption appear below.


FIGURE 5. Close-up view of the mapped submarine features (see Figure 4 for their location). (A) Large submarine landslides along the steep frontal wedge of the northern NT segment (NT1) and steep bathymetry of the colliding Cagayan Ridge (CR) in the west. Between the frontal wedge and the CR is a deeply incised submarine canyon that is parallel to the trench. (B) Prominent deformation front and associated submarine features of the frontal wedge in the northern ST segment (ST1). (C) Poorly developed frontal wedge, submarine canyons, and submarine landslides in the southern ST segment (ST2). (D) Well-developed networks of submarine canyons and associated submarine landslides offshore of southern Negros Island. (E) Three-dimensional perspective of submarine landslides in Figure 5D.

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.
