In the Report “Self-organization of river channels as a critical filter on climate signals,” Figs. 2 and 4 were affected by an error in the treatment of the equation Embedded Image within the Python programming environment; specifically, the exponent 3/2 was mistakenly computed as integer division (3/2 = 1) instead of float division (3.0/2.0 = 1.5). Because the integral is mostly dependent on time and not shear velocity, the differences in the corrected figures are slight, and the conclusions of the paper are not affected. The HTML and PDF versions of the paper have been corrected, as have the supplementary materials (figs. S5 to S7).
