[1] In the paper “Coupled transport and reaction kinetics control the nitrate source-sink function of hyporheic zones,” by Jay P. Zarnetske et al. (Water Resources Research, 48, W11508, doi:10.1029/2012WR011894), an error occurred in which a symbol was reversed in the Abstract. The corrected sentence reads as follows:

[2] We further show that whether the [hyporheic zone] HZ is a net NO3 source or net NO3 sink is determined by the ratio of the characteristic transport time to the characteristic reaction time of O2 (i.e., the Damköhler number, DaO2), where HZs with DaO2 < 1 will be net nitrification environments and HZs with DaO2 ≫ 1 will be net denitrification environments.
