Following publication of the original article (Karato et al., 2020), the author identified there is a minor typo in Fig. 13 and graphical abstract image. The correct Fig. 13 and graphic abstract image are provided below. The original paper has been updated.

Results of model calculations on ocean mass history. Regassing parameters (rate of regassing and duration of regassing pulse (τ1)) are chosen to reproduce the inferred rapid sea-level drop (2–3 m/Myrs (in the last ~ 100 Myrs); Fig. 6). Degassing parameters include the area of cool regions with excess degassing (SC) and the delay time (τ2) for degassing since the beginning of excess regassing (and the plume upwelling velocity (~ 1 m/year)). a History of the water content in the MTZ (τ1 = τ2=100 Myrs). b Sea-level change corresponding to the model shown in (a) using a relation \( \Delta z\approx -\overline{z}\frac{M_{MTZ}\Delta {X}_{MTZ}}{W_{\mathrm{ocean}}} \) (Δz: sea-level change, \( \overline{z} \): average depth of the oceans (= 3730 m), MMTZ: mass of the MTZ (= 4 × 1023 kg)), ΔXMTZ: change in the water content of the MTZ; Wocean: mass of oceans (=1.4 × 1021 kg)). b Same as (a) except that τ1=100 Myrs, and τ2=200 Myrs. c Same as (b) except that τ1=100 Myrs, and τ2=200 Myrs. Observed sea-level changes (Fig. 7) can be explained with SC=(3–10) × 1010 (m2) (i.e., a region with 200–350 km diameter)
