JUNE 2021 C O R R I G E N D A 1135 a,b,c d c BENJAMIN A. SCHENKEL, ROGER EDWARDS, AND MICHAEL CONIGLIO Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies, University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma School of Meteorology, University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma NOAA/NSSL, Norman, Oklahoma NOAA/SPC, Norman, Oklahoma (Manuscript received 13 April 2021, in ﬁnal form 30 April 2021) An error was discovered in the inadvertent inclusion of tropical cyclone (TC) motion from both the composite hodographs (Fig. 12) and vertical proﬁles of TC-relative tangential and radial winds (Fig. 13) computed from radiosondes sampling landfalling TCs in Schenkel et al. (2020). There are two primary reasons why TC motion should have been removed from these ﬁgures. First, the inclusion of TC motion makes it impossible to determine whether changes in the total wind ﬁeld are due to the ambient or TC wind ﬁeld when Fig. 12 and es- pecially Fig. 13 were focused on differences in the latter. Second, exclusion of TC motion is consistent with previous studies of TC tornadoes (McCaul 1991; Baker et al. 2009)and the response of the TC circulation to ambient deep-tropospheric vertical wind shear (VWS; Zhang et al. 2013; DeHart et al. 2014).
