Please download the latest version of this article and read suggestions below from editorial office for revision.  

About dataset:

1, About the data set "TyphoonTracks.zip", the author describes that it has five elements: TyphoonID, PositionID, YMD, Grade and Windspeed, but in the data set, in addition to these elements, it also has Id, ymd, Grade2, Wind and ID2, whether these are repeated or redundant? Suggest the author check it, if they are not necessary, please delete them; 2, Suggest the author add the address where the data set in the Science DB: http://www.sciencedb.cn/dataSet/handle/396 to the "Data service system"

About article:

1. Please check the geographical scope and complete the units.

2. Dataset composition part: Why in such timespans specified? Suggest to explain it in the text below.

3. What’s the difference between this dataset and similar datasets? What’s the advantage? If not mentioned in chapter 5, suggest you to add some introduction.

4. 53 or 63 years in chapter 1?

5. Data set or dataset? Western Pacific… or western North Pacific Ocean? Should those be unified in this article or not? You decide.

6. Only 2.1 in chapter 2, no 2.2? Anything missed?

7. "...windspeed data were available only for 1977–present", Could you add some explanation about it?

8. There four .zip mentioned in Dataset Profile, do you think you should demonstrate correspondingly in chapter 3? If not, ignore it.

9. " We also failed to detect clear temporal trends in typhoon characteristics that might relate to climate change processes occurring globally", Suggest to put it to chapter 4.

10. Reference part: ①All the reference formats are not fit standard. ②The authors are not intact in reference 4, 7, 9, 11.

E.g., Walther G, Post E, Convey P et al. Ecological Responses to Recent Climate Change. Nature 416 (2002): 389–395.

About dataset:

• About the data set "TyphoonTracks.zip", the author describes that it has five elements: TyphoonID, PositionID, YMD, Grade and Windspeed, but in the data set, in addition to these elements, it also has Id, ymd, Grade2, Wind and ID2, whether these are repeated or redundant? Suggest the author check it, if they are not necessary, please delete them.

The reviewer is correct. Those fields are repeated. We have eliminated them, and created a new version of TyphoonTracks.zip. This has been uploaded to KU Scholarworks, and is being provided to ScienceDB.

• Suggest the author add the address where the data set in the Science DB: http://www.sciencedb.cn/dataSet/handle/396 to the "Data service system"

Done.

About article:

• Please check the geographical scope and complete the units.

Added “latitude” and “longitude” for clarity, but otherwise was not sure what it was that was being requested.

• Dataset composition part: Why in such timespans specified? Suggest to explain it in the text below.

Now clarified.

• What’s the difference between this dataset and similar datasets? What’s the advantage? If not mentioned in chapter 5, suggest you to add some introduction.

A sentence has been added to make the point more clearly: no other such dataset exists.

• 53 or 63 years in chapter 1?

It is 63. Fixed. Thanks.

• Data set or dataset? Western Pacific… or western North Pacific Ocean? Should those be unified in this article or not? You decide.

Done.

• Only 2.1 in chapter 2, no 2.2? Anything missed?

A second subheading has now been added, to avoid this seemingly odd arrangement.

• "...windspeed data were available only for 1977–present", Could you add some explanation about it?

A brief explanation is now added—apparently those data were not available prior to that year

• There four .zip mentioned in Dataset Profile, do you think you should demonstrate correspondingly in chapter 3? If not, ignore it.

Done.

• " We also failed to detect clear temporal trends in typhoon characteristics that might relate to climate change processes occurring globally", Suggest to put it to chapter 4.

Moved to the end of part 1, which seemed most appropriate.

• Reference part: o All the reference formats are not fit standard. o The authors are not intact in reference 4, 7, 9, 11.

♣ E.g., Walther G, Post E, Convey P et al. Ecological Responses to Recent Climate Change. Nature 416 (2002): 389–395.

The references have been updated to add the missing author names and to conform fully to CSD formats.

Reviewer 1:
This dataset consists of grid data processed from information concerning the typhoon path in the Northwest Pacific, including typhoon frequency and intensity (average and maximum speed). It provides valuable data for studying the impact of climate disaster and typhoon on environment and ecology. The paper also gives a detailed introduction to the data sources, processing method, final variables, dataset names and websites. That said, I would suggest the author clarify the temperal resolution of the data - whether they are monthly or yearly recorded.  
Reviewer 2: 
In this draft, the author provides data about typhoons in the Northwest Pacific for 1951-2004 years.The data present a detailed dataset summarizing the frequency and intensity of typhoons across the Western Pacific north of the Equator, based on data characterizing tracks for 1673 typhoons from the Japan Meteorological Center. This set of data has obvious characteristics and advantages.This dataset is the only existing summary of broad, long-term patterns in typhoon frequency and strengthacross a major ocean basin, for use in diverse applications to questions in other fields.I think this set of data is useful for understanding the environmental and disturbance conditions of typhoon formation and development. Conducive to tackling climate problems and questions related to climate change.
The following questions need to be discussed in more detail.
1、How to deal with data distortion caused by uneven data distribution by line segment?
2、How to deal with the classification of typhoons in the Pacific Northwest considered in this JMC data?
3、What do you mean by "summarized for M" in the last second lines of the ninth page?

Reviewer 1:

I would suggest the author clarify the temporal resolution of the data - whether they are monthly or yearly recorded. We have now added verbiage regarding the temporal resolution of the data to the manuscript. See response to question 1 of reviewer 2, below.

Reviewer 2:

1. How to deal with data distortion caused by uneven data distribution by line segment?

This is a good point. In effect, the data available to us have a temporal resolution of one day. As a consequence, if a typhoon is moving fast, then the spatial resolution of the typhoon data is coarser; if it is moving slowly, then the spatial resolution of the typhoon data will be finer. There really is no remedy for this “basement level” of spatial resolution to these data, as there is no finer resolution in time (and consequently in space) to these data. We have added this point to the manuscript.

2. How to deal with the classification of typhoons in the Pacific Northwest considered in this JMC data?

We decided to concentrate on quantitative aspects of the typhoon phenomenon across the northwestern Pacific Ocean. As a consequence, we focused on windspeed and frequency of occurrence, rather than on categorical classifications in developing the datasets presented in this paper. We have added mention of the classifications in the text now, to clarify this point.

3. What do you mean by "summarized for M" in the last second lines of the ninth page?

Thanks for pointing out this phrase that is not as clear as it could be. We changed it to “and not in any summary form,” which should be more clear and understandable for the readers.

In 6. Usage notes,"There are no copyright or proprietary restrictions for these datasets". In China Scientific Data, all data papers and their datasets should be free for reuse under cc-by 4.0 by default, so I would like to suggest the author to delete this sentence.
