There are some errors in the computations of the poleward energy and water transports in Held and Soden (2006) that affect Figs. 5, 10, and 11. The revised figures are shown below (Figs. 1, 2, and 3). A scaling error resulted in all fluxes in these figures being multiplied erroneously by π/2. The ordinate in these figures needs to be rescaled to account for this error, which does not change the figures otherwise and does not affect the discussion of these figures in the text. A more significant programming error distorted Figs. 10 and 11. In the original, the increase in poleward latent heat flux was, surprisingly, uncompensated by any change in the poleward sensible heat flux in the A1B transient scenario. In the corrected versions (Figs. 2 and 3) there is some compensation due to a decrease in the sensible flux, but not as great as that in the equilibrated slab ocean models, more in line with expectations. The discussion of this compensation is the only aspect of the text of the paper that is affected by these corrections. The authors of the original paper apologize for any inconvenience these errors have caused.
