The Temperature Correction for the Electrical Resistivity Measurements in Undisturbed Soil Samples: Analysis of the Existing Conversion Models and Proposal of a New Model: Erratum
Equations, derived in part from the review written by Friedman (1995), contain formulation errors. Equation 4 originally developed by Rhoades et al. (1999) is as follows:
We cited Equation 5 as presented by Corwin and Lesch (2005). This equation was developed with a positive fraction (Tm/n) in the original article of Sheet and Hendricks (1995). The parameter γ of Equation 3, originally developed under logarithmic form by Wells (1978), is positive. We regret the errors.

In addition, we acknowledge that the models were developed and generally tested on soil solutions that were not representative of real field soil variability. Again, the power function shown in this article used an empirical parameter developed on undisturbed and unsaturated soil samples and not on soil solutions. The power conversion model was then tested at 15°C, that is, temperatures close to the in field annual mean under temperate climate.
