scales. Thus, observations and sampling strategies for initial condition specification and forecast validation, similar to those employed in past TC field programs, such as, the Coupled Boundary Layer Air–Sea Transfer (CBLAST) experiment during the 2003/04 hurricane season, Tropical Cyclone Structure 2008 (TCS08), and Impact of Typhoons on the Ocean in the Pacific (ITOP) in 2010 ( Black 2012 ; Black et al. 2007 ; D’Asaro et al. 2011 , 2014 ), require continual improvement to match model demands

1. Introduction Mapping the surface wind speed in a hurricane is a great challenge that affects the ability to issue accurate forecasts and warnings for the maximum wind speed, wind field structure, and related impacts ( Powell et al. 2009 ; Uhlhorn and Nolan 2012 ; Nolan et al. 2014 ). Buoys can provide useful measurements, but only for the precise parts of a hurricane that happen to track across the buoy. As with any surface stations, buoys are subject to failures in extreme conditions (i
