Later, during the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Synoptic Flow Experiment between 1982 and 1996, aircraft-based dropwindsonde
observations were targeted around the TC in regions based on synoptic reasoning (Burpee et al.
Wind speed retrievals have been compared to a large set of dropwindsonde
data and show the GPS method to be capable of responding well to wind speeds of 40 m [s.
