To ensure that readers have the most accurate data, the authors would like to correct a number of mistakes made in the original published article. These errors do not change the main results, conclusions, or general concepts of the work. However, the authors feel it is important to correct these issues. • On page 50 in the second paragraph of the section ‘Bioerosion, secondary accretion, and total framework growth’, the term ‘overall site ΔC_’ should include a better explanation that this average is obtained from taking the mean ΔC_ value of only samples where linear extension was directly calculated, not by multiplying the site average linear extension by the site average buoyant weight. As such, the sentence has been rewritten as follows: ‘The sample mean percent area of macroboring and secondary accretion were multiplied by the associated sample ΔC_ (when available) or the overall site average ΔC_, calculated only from samples where direct linear extension calculations were provided.
