1 Correction to: Clim Dyn

In the original publication, Figs. 4 and 5 of the original article have the units of meridional temperature gradient, dSAT/dy, incorrectly stated as K/km, rather than K/100 km. In addition, the values of area mean dSAT/dy in subfigures 5d–f are incorrect. The correct Figs. 4 and 5 appear below. The original article was corrected.

Fig. 4

Change in background climate (RCP8.5-HIST) for DJF (left column) and JJA (right column) for 2 m temp (top row), the meridional gradient in near surface air temperature (dSAT/dy; second row), 250 hPa zonal wind (third row; the climatological field is shown in white contours) and the zonal component of the vertical wind shear (750–925 hPa; bottom row). The purple box in subfigure c indicates the boundary of the GINB region described in the analysis, the Eurasian Arctic Frontal Zone (EAFZ) and North American Arctic Frontal Zone (AAFZ) are shown in d

Scatter plots showing intra-ensemble member correlations between summer a mean zonal wind speed and cyclone frequency in the AOCM (70–87.5 N, 120–240 E), b mean zonal wind speed and cyclone intensity in the AOCM, c mean dSAT/dy against mean meridional temperature gradient in the AOCM, AOCM cyclone intensity and dSAT/dy in the Eurasian Arctic Frontal Zone (EAFZ) (d), and North American Arctic Frontal Zone (AAFZ) (e) and between dSAT/dy in the AAFZ and U850 in the AOCM. The correlation coefficient and significance level of each relationship is stated above each subplot
