Correction: polynomial fit consants were truncated in the manuscript but more decimal places are needed, use p = { 0.0030084, -0.1655405, 3.2305351, -25.8343054, 71.5397861}. The value of hydrogen escape coefficient was stated incorrectly; the correct value is s = 3.7e-5. The results and conclusion are not affected (correct p is especially important to reproduce the results!)
