Erratum: Human contribution to the European heatwave of 2003

Nature 432, 610–614 (2004)

The description of the method used for the calculation of the fraction attributable risk (FAR) shown in Fig. 4b is incorrect. The corresponding sentence in the Methods section should read “For the red curve, the response to anthropogenic forcing is also included, and a normal distribution is used to estimate the chance of exceeding the 1.6 K threshold.”
