This article is included in the CLIVAR/SeaFlux special collection.

There are two incorrect figures in the paper by Jiang et al. (2012). The right panels of Figs. 5 and 6 therein indicated incorrect phases of seasonal turbulent heat fluxes owing to an error in converting from radians to months. The corrected figures appear below. The text describing the phases in the second part of the fourth paragraph on page 1478 is corrected to “The SST seasonal cycle peaks mainly in February and March (Fig. 5a), consistent with the upper 100-m XBT temperatures (Sprintall 2003). Both the seasonal cycle of air temperature (Fig. 5b) and specific humidity (Fig. 6b) peak in February, just prior to the peak ocean temperature. Unlike SST and air temperature, the air–sea temperature difference peaks from June to July (Fig. 5c). The turbulent heat fluxes peak from November to February and show a distinct dependence on latitude (Figs. 5d and 6c).”

The (left) amplitudes and (right) phases of the seasonal cycles of the sensible heat fluxes () and the flux-related variables: (a) SST, (b) Tair, (c) air–sea temperature difference , and (d) sensible heat flux . Error bars denote the standard error of the means (N = 95). The phases indicate the month of the maximum in the annual cycle of each variable.
