Abstract

This is an erratum to the paper ‘The GOGREEN survey: the environmental dependence of the star-forming galaxymain sequence at 1.0 < z < 1.5’ that was published in MNRAS, 493, 5987– 6000 (2020). The [O II] fluxes and derived star-formation rates we derive from our spectra require an absolute flux calibration, which is obtained by comparing with the i-band photometry. In the data presented in the original publication, this calibration was applied incorrectly, as its inverse. The error has little effect on the mean properties of the sample, because the scaling factor is below unity for about half the sample, and above unity for the other half. However, it had the effect of greatly increasing the scatter in these derived quantities. This has a modest impact on our quantitative conclusions and interpretation.
