Short summary
The study shows that the conventional steering calculated over a certain radius from the tropical cyclone center in the horizontal and a deep pressure layer in the vertical is not literally the steering or the advection of the symmetric potential vorticity component associated with a tropical cyclone by the asymmetric flow. The trochoidal motion around the mean tropical cyclone track cannot be accounted for by the effect of the conventional steering.
