The authors would like to provide updated sediment porosity values for the four sampling stations included in Table 1 of the original paper, due to an error in the original calculations. The porosity corrections do not change any of the data interpretations or the text of the manuscript.
For simplicity and clarity, corrections are listed below in bold and underlined font. The page number corresponds to the original paper.
• Page 3. Table 1.
◦ Childs River Estuary (CRE), Sediment Characteristics, Porosity, 0.46 (±0.02) changes to 0.64 (±0.02)
◦ Metoxit Point (MP), Sediment Characteristics, Porosity, 0.56 (±0.02) changes to 0.83 (±0.01)
◦ South Basin (SB), Sediment Characteristics, Porosity, 0.42 (±0.01) changes to 0.59 (±0.01)
◦ Sage Lot Pond (SLP), Sediment Characteristics, Porosity, 0.50 (±0.01) changes to 0.79 (±0.01)
Both authors, SQF and RWF discussed the error and agreed to request the correction. The first draft of the Corrigendum text was written by SQF. RWF read and provided comments on the draft and SQF finalized the text.
