Correction

After the publication of our research article [1], we noticed that incorrect numbers were reported for the five lower parameters in the published Table three (Table 1 here). The published numbers derive from Table two in the article and were mistakenly copied into Table three (Table 1 here). This correction contains the corrected numbers for Table three (Table 1 here).
