Abstract

The authors wish to make the following corrections to this paper [1]: We have found three inadvertent errors in our paper published in Remote Sensing [1]. 1. Page 3, line 7, “black body, a perfect emitter … ” should be “body in thermal equilibrium with its surroundings … ” 2. Page 5, line 1: “OSTIA provides SST for the upper ocean, nominally at 0.2 to 1 m depth … ” should be “OSTIA provides foundation SST at 4–10 m depth where diurnal effects are absent” 3. Page 7, line 31: “subsurface” should “subskin” and the following sentence should be removed “In OSTIA, a cool bias of 0.17 K is added to satellite data that measure skin SST at wind speeds over about 6 m s−1 to estimate SST at depth [24]. (We did not re-correct the SST data to obtain skin SST from SST at depth).” These changes have no material impact on the conclusions of our paper. However, we would like to make the reader aware that the ERA5 dataset [2] also contains skin temperature over sea, which we would have used instead of SST if we had been aware of it ourselves. The authors would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused to the readers by these changes.
