We examined air-sea fluxes and ocean response in four of the most intense TC cases in the Caribbean Sea--Hurricane Ivan (2004), Hurricane Emily (2005), Hurricane Dean (2007), and Hurricane Felix (2007)--using dropwindsonde data, satellite SST, and OHC climatology from the Systematically Merged Atlantic Temperature and Salinity Climatology (SMARTS, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, University of Miami).

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.sup.-1] or less (Katzberg et al.
