[1] In the paper “Future changes and uncertainties in Asian precipitation simulated by multiphysics and multi-sea surface temperature ensemble experiments with high-resolution Meteorological Research Institute atmospheric general circulation models (MRI-AGCMs)” by H. Endo et al. (Journal of Geophysical Research, 117, D16118, doi:10.1029/2012JD017874, 2012), Figure 11b was incorrect. The corrected figure is below (Figure 1). The error was made in plotting data. Specifically, the same data were used for plotting Figures 11a and 11b, although the respective areas shaded or hatched were different. However, any description and conclusions of the original paper are not changed by this correction.

Figure 1. Future changes (F − P; mm/day) in (a) Pav and (b) SDII in the 60 km model ensemble simulations. Grid points where the future changes are statistically significant (at the 5% level) are shaded, and grid points where at least 10 experiments show the same sign of change are hatched. Relative contribution ratio (%) of variances among projections for (c) Pav and (d) SDII. The ratio is defined as the variance resulting from the different cumulus schemes relative to the variance resulting from the different SSTs, based on the percentage changes ((F − P)/P). The grid points shaded in blue (red) correspond to sites where the effect of the SST patterns (the cumulus schemes) is dominant. Note that unshaded grid points are not significantly affected by either factor (at the 1% level).
