The correlation values as cited on page 3498 of Ambaum et al. (2001) between the centers of action of the first EOF of mean sea level pressure are incorrect; all the other numbers mentioned are correct. The corrected correlation values are shown below (with the two-sided Student p values shown in parentheses):
i1520-0442-15-5-553-eq1

The p value is the probability that the correlation value occurs by chance for two uncorrelated time series of the same sample size (76). It is interesting to note that there is also a correlation of −0.10 between the Azores and the time-reversed Pacific time series, that is, when causality between the two time series has been explicitly destroyed yet the autocorrelation structure has been preserved.

The corrected correlation values do not alter the conclusions of our article. We apologize for the possible inconvenience this may have caused.
