1. Introduction The world’s oceans are vast data-void regions. To combat the lack of high-resolution ocean surface wind data, the Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) mission was launched to retrieve wind speeds ( Ruf et al. 2016 ). The main objective for CYGNSS, which is composed of eight bistatic microscatterometers, is to accurately and quickly retrieve rapidly changing wind speeds within precipitating regions of tropical cyclones, in order to improve the forecasting
