In Doebler and Sparrow [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 141(6), EL592-EL597 (2017)], a collection of five sonic boom metrics were analyzed to see which was the most stable in atmospheric turbulence. After publication, a mistake in one metric calculation was discovered that alters a portion of the results from that work. The purpose of this note is to correct those results - replacing one figure and commenting on another. The correction indicates that the Indoor Sonic Boom Annoyance Predictor (ISBAP) is a stable metric in regards to turbulence. ISBAP and B-weighted Sound Exposure Level (BSEL) are found to be similarly stable. E-weighted Sound Exposure Level (ESEL) is the next most stable followed by Steven's Mark VII Perceived Level (PL) and A-weighted Sound Exposure Level (ASEL).
