The authors regret two errors: 1. In section 3.3, Missoula flood timing synopsis, we refer to the age of the Glacier Peak tephra as 13.7–13.5 ka. Because of a typographical error, this should be 13.7–13.4 ka, as stated elsewhere in the report.2. Due to unfortunate modifications to the text and tables during the revision process, we failed to properly acknowledge and credit Thomas Cooney's discovery of several of the ice-rafted erratics reported in Table 3, “Evidence of maximum Missoula flood stages.” In particular, Mr. Cooney (mistakenly referred to as Thomas Cooley in the original version posted on-line) discovered and guided us to the four erratics listed as near “Columbia Valley near Hawk Creek” in the section of the table specifying maximum flood evidence for the “Upper Columbia River Valley; Spokane River confluence to Grand Coulee.” In addition, we should have acknowledged that Mr. Cooney graciously guided us to several field sites helpful to our understanding of flood inundation and processes in the little studied Telford Crab Creek scabland tract.The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
