1. Introduction For decades, airborne expendable bathythermographs (AXBTs) have been used extensively for sampling ocean temperature profiles for oceanic surveys and research (e.g., Bane and Sessions 1984 ; Dinegar Boyd 1987 ; Watts et al. 1989 ; Price et al. 1994 ; Rodríguez-Santana et al. 1999 ). Recently, airborne expendable conductivity–temperature–depth (AXCTD) probes were developed to obtain both temperature and salinity profiles ( Chu and Fan 2001 ; Shay and Brewster 2010 ). These

fields were prepared and put into a format that E2ES can process. The mandatory variables for E2ES input include time, latitude, longitude, wind speed ( u and υ components), rain rate, freezing-level height, land mask, SST, and sea surface salinity. These input data were defined over a rectangular latitude–longitude area. Hence, all input variables, except salinity, were taken from the WRF simulations. As salinity has only a small effect on CYGNSS signals and was not available from the WRF
