The article presents the response by Chun-Chieh Wu and colleagues to a comment to their article "Interaction of Typhoon Shanshan (2006) With the Midlatitude Trough From Both Adjoint-Derived Sensitivity Steering Vector and Potential Vorticity Perspectives." They clarified that the concept associated with the adjoint-derived sensitivity steering vector in W07 and W09 have been misunderstood and misinterpreted by H09. They elaborate that the numerical experiment in H09 makes sense in itself.
