  1. Are tropical SST trends changing the global teleconnection during La Niña? Volume 37, Issue 12, Article first published online: 17 June 2010

[1] In the paper “Are tropical SST trends changing the global teleconnection during La Niña?” by Arun Kumar et al. (Geophysical Research Letters, 37, L12702, doi:10.1029/2010GL043394, 2010), Figure 1 is revised. The revision is necessary because of an error in the computation of linear trend in sea surface temperatures. The second sentence of paragraph two is changed to “The upward linear trend has not been uniform, and over the global tropics, the positive trend is strongest over the eastern portion of the Indian, Pacific, and Atlantic Oceans (Figure 1).” The second sentence of paragraph 17 “As Figure 1 illustrates, warming of tropical ocean basins accompanying the La Niña SST composites is consistent with the SST trend of tropical warming, especially over the Indian and the warm pool region of the Pacific.” is deleted.

Figure 1.

Linear trend in sea surface temperature based on the December–January–February (DJF) seasonal mean for the 1950–2008 period. Units are in Deg C/58-years. Areas shaded in red (blue) indicate warming (cooling) trends.
