In the original article, there was a mistake in Figure 2 as published. Monthly SST mean plots obtained from OceanCurrents (http://oceancurrent.imos.org.au/) contained an error at the time that we downloaded our data. This error has subsequently been corrected, and we were notified of the error by OceanCurrents after the publication of our article. The correct SST anomalies are lower than those suggested in the original Figure 2. The corrected Figure 2 appears below.
Figure 2. A schematic of the timeline of extreme events and habitat impacts. Sea surface temperature anomaly maps (°C increase above the monthly climatology over the period 1993–2014) associated with each extreme event are shown, as well as the indicative spatial footprint of the habitat impacts. The maps (A–E) indicate the habitat types affected and the kind of extreme event causing the impact (e.g., MHW, tropical cyclone, flood, etc.), and were created based on maps or geographic details provided in the literature cited in the main text. Thermal anomalies at the time of each ECE are depicted in the figures immediately above. A timeline of the specific types of extreme events are shown in the bottom part of the diagram—with only cyclones (gray circles) of category 2 or above shown (source www.bom.gov.au). W, N, and E indicate the region of Australia (West, North, East) affected.
Additionally, there was an error in affiliation Mathew A. Vanderklift. Instead of having both affiliation 3 and 5, Matthew A. Vanderklift should only have affiliation 5.
The authors apologize for these error and state that they do not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
