ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses the article "Interaction of Typhoon Shanshan (2006) With the Midlatitude Trough From Both Adjoint-Derived Sensitivity Steering Vector and Potential Vorticity Perspectives." He argues that there are several problems with the methodology. He notes that there is a lack of dynamical interpretation of the adjoint-derived sensitivity gradients and lack of tests for the appropriateness of the response functions used to describe tropical cyclone steering.
