Correction to: Environ Monit Assess (August 2019) 191:520

The original version of this article unfortunately contained an error. All “50s” and “70s” were replaced by “1950s” and “1970s” throughout the published paper.

The corrected version of the sentences is given below.


Page 1 Left Column under Abstract section, first paragraph, lines 1–7 should be rewritten as: This study assesses the climate boundary shifts from the historical time to near/mid future by using a slightly modified Köppen–Geiger (KG) classification scheme and presents comprehensive pictures of historical (1961–1990) and projected near/mid future (2050s: 2041–2060/ 2070s: 2061–2080) climate classes across Nepal.

Throughout the text:

All occurrences of 1960 should be rewritten as 1961.

All occurrences of 1950s should be rewritten as 2050s.

All occurrences of 1970s should be rewritten as 2070s.

Results and discussions

Page 8, Left Column, lines 1–5 of bottom paragraph, the sentence should be rewritten as: Figure 4 shows the country’s averaged precipitation, minimum temperature, maximum temperature, and average temperature in the 2050s under RCP 4.5 and 2070s under RCP 8.5 projected by three GCMs and a MMM of the selected three GCMs.


Page 15, Left Column, lines 1–3 of conclusion, the sentence should be rewritten as: We presented the KG climate classification maps of Nepal for the historical period (1961–1990) and for projected future (2041–2080) under climate change.
