Several press errors appeared in “Comments on ‘A Common Misunderstanding about the Voigt Line Profile’” by Franz Schreier, which was published in the Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences,Vol. 66, No. 6, 1860–1864. Equation (3) should read
The definition of half widths given at the beginning of section 3 should be g(ν̂ ± γ) = g(ν̂)/2. The numerical estimate for the Gaussian half-width given after Eq. (11) should be γD ≈ 6 × 10−8ν̂T with line position ν̂ in cm−1 and temperature T in kelvins.
Furthermore, the two figures were printed in black and white instead of color. They appear below as they were meant to appear originally.
