The publication contained a dating model that was based on AD/BC dates instead of years before present (YBP) dates for the three C14 AMS values. As a result, dates reported as YBP should be reported as BC. While all of the dates for the prescribed burning period are correct given that they were based on the 210Pb model, all dates reported as YBP should read BC.
The abstract should read, “throughout the last 8000 years.”
The final paragraph in the introduction should read, “from the mid-Holocene (~ 6000 BC) to present.”
The end of the first paragraph in the Results section should read, “the sediment core represented the past ~ 8000 YBP and the core sections below the 210Pb record averaged sedimentation rates of 1.73 ± 2.1 mg cm−2 year−1.”
All dates presented as Years Before Present or YPB for the remainder of the manuscript should be reported as BC.
Added to Acknowledgements: “The authors would like to thank Sally Horn and Matt Boehm with help with the age model and dating.”
- Table 1 has been updated with the “Calibrated Age” column reflecting the correct dates in YBP notation.Table 1
