There is a critical error in the abstract of Yuan and Horner-Devine (2013). In the eighth line of the abstract, the word “decreases” should be “increases.” The corrected sentence should read as “Later spreading increases the average plume density relative to laterally confined currents with similar inflow conditions.”
The authors regret any inconvenience this error may have caused.
