[1] In the paper “Apparent and true polar wander and the geometry of the geomagnetic field over the last 200 Myr” by Jean Besse and Vincent Courtillot (Journal of Geophysical Research, 107(B11), 2300, doi:10.1029/2000JB000050, 2002), the data in the top part of Table 4 were incorrect. The correct Table 4 is given here.
