Correction to: Paleoenvironmental changes across the Paleocene–Eocene boundary in West Central Sinai, Egypt: geochemical proxies

Correction to: Swiss J Geosci (2020) 113:3 https://doi.org/10.1186/s00015-020-00357-3

Following publication of the original article (Ghandour 2020), it was reported that the location map in Fig. 1 is modified after Speijer, but this was not mentioned in the caption of Fig. 1.

The caption of Fig. 1 has to be read as:

“Location map of the study area showing the locations of the stratigraphic sections. The location map of the study area is modified after Speijer (1994) and Speijer et al. (2000). The stratigraphic sections and the biostratigraphic zonation are modified after Faris et al. (2015)”.

The full reference information for Speijer (1994) and Speijer et al. (2000) were not included in the original article, but can be found in the Reference list in this Correction.
